Ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā sāvatthiyaṃ viharati jetavane anātha­piṇḍi­kassa ārāme. Tena kho pana samayena āyasmā visākho pañcālaputto upaṭṭhā­na­sālā­yaṃ bhikkhū dhammiyā kathāya sandasseti samādapeti samuttejeti sampahaṃseti, poriyā vācāya vissaṭṭhāya anelagalāya atthassa viññāpaniyā pariyāpannāya anissitāya. Atha kho bhagavā sāyanhasamayaṃ paṭisallānā vuṭṭhito yena upaṭṭhānasālā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā paññatte āsane nisīdi. Nisajja kho bhagavā bhikkhū āmantesi:

“Ko nu kho, bhikkhave, upaṭṭhā­na­sālā­yaṃ bhikkhū dhammiyā kathāya sandasseti samādapeti samuttejeti sampahaṃseti poriyā vācāya vissaṭṭhāya anelagalāya atthassa viññāpaniyā pariyāpannāya anissitāyā”ti? “Āyasmā, bhante, visākho pañcālaputto upaṭṭhā­na­sālā­yaṃ bhikkhū dhammiyā kathāya sandasseti samādapeti samuttejeti sampahaṃseti poriyā vācāya vissaṭṭhāya anelagalāya atthassa viññāpaniyā pariyāpannāya anissitāyā”ti.

Atha kho bhagavā āyasmantaṃ visākhaṃ pañcālaputtaṃ etadavoca: “sādhu sādhu, visākha. Sādhu kho tvaṃ, visākha, bhikkhū dhammiyā kathāya sandassesi samādapesi samuttejesi sampahaṃsesi poriyā vācāya vissaṭṭhāya anelagalāya atthassa viññāpaniyā pariyāpannāya anissitāyāti.

Nābhāsamānaṃ jānanti,
missaṃ bālehi paṇḍitaṃ;
Bhāsamānañca jānanti,
desentaṃ amataṃ padaṃ.

Bhāsaye jotaye dhammaṃ,
paggaṇhe isinaṃ dhajaṃ;
Subhāsitadhajā isayo,
dhammo hi isinaṃ dhajo”ti.

Aṭṭhamaṃ.
