Atha kho bhagavā sāyanhasamayaṃ paṭisallānā vuṭṭhito yena upaṭṭhānasālā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā paññatte āsane nisīdi. Nisajja kho bhagavā bhikkhū āmantesi: “kāya nuttha, bhikkhave, etarahi kathāya sannisinnā sannipatitā, kā ca pana vo antarākathā vippakatā”ti?

“Idha mayaṃ, bhante, pacchābhattaṃ piṇḍa­pāta­paṭik­kantā upaṭṭhā­na­sālā­yaṃ sannisinnā sannipatitā anekavihitaṃ tiracchā­na­kathaṃ anuyuttā viharāma, seyyathidaṃ—rājakathaṃ corakathaṃ … pe … iti­bhavā­bhava­kathaṃ iti vā”ti. “Na kho panetaṃ, bhikkhave, tumhākaṃ patirūpaṃ kulaputtānaṃ saddhāya agārasmā anagāriyaṃ pabbajitānaṃ, yaṃ tumhe anekavihitaṃ tiracchā­na­kathaṃ anuyuttā vihareyyātha, seyyathidaṃ—rājakathaṃ corakathaṃ ­mahā­matta­kathaṃ senākathaṃ bhayakathaṃ yuddhakathaṃ annakathaṃ pānakathaṃ vatthakathaṃ sayanakathaṃ mālākathaṃ gandhakathaṃ ñātikathaṃ yānakathaṃ gāmakathaṃ nigamakathaṃ nagarakathaṃ janapadakathaṃ itthikathaṃ sūrakathaṃ visikhākathaṃ kum­bhaṭ­ṭhā­na­kathaṃ pubba­peta­kathaṃ nānattakathaṃ lokakkhāyikaṃ samud­dak­khā­yi­kaṃ iti­bhavā­bhava­kathaṃ iti vāti.

Dasayimāni, bhikkhave, kathāvatthūni. Katamāni dasa? Appicchakathā, santuṭṭhikathā, pavivekakathā, asaṃsaggakathā, vīriyā­rambha­kathā, sīlakathā, samādhikathā, paññākathā, vimuttikathā, vimutti­ñāṇadas­sana­kathāti—imāni kho, bhikkhave, dasa kathāvatthūni.

Imesañce tumhe, bhikkhave, dasannaṃ kathāvatthūnaṃ upādāyupādāya kathaṃ katheyyātha, imesampi can­dima­sūriyā­naṃ evaṃ­ma­hiddhi­kā­naṃ evaṃma­hā­nubhā­vā­naṃ tejasā tejaṃ ­pariyā­diyey­yā­tha, ko pana vādo añña­titthi­yā­naṃ paribbājakānan”ti.
