Yasmiṃ, bhikkhave, samaye āraññikassa nāgassa gocara­pasutassa hatthīpi hatthiniyopi ­hatthi­ka­labhāpi hatthicchāpāpi obhaggobhaggaṃ sākhābhaṅgaṃ khādanti, tena, bhikkhave, āraññiko nāgo aṭṭīyati harāyati jigucchati. Yasmiṃ, bhikkhave, samaye āraññikassa nāgassa ogāhaṃ otiṇṇassa hatthīpi hatthiniyopi ­hatthi­ka­labhāpi hatthicchāpāpi purato purato gantvā soṇḍāya udakaṃ āloḷenti, tena, bhikkhave, āraññiko nāgo aṭṭīyati harāyati jigucchati. Yasmiṃ, bhikkhave, samaye āraññikassa nāgassa ogāhā uttiṇṇassa hatthiniyo kāyaṃ upa­nighaṃ­san­tiyo gacchanti, tena, bhikkhave, āraññiko nāgo aṭṭīyati harāyati jigucchati.

Tasmiṃ, bhikkhave, samaye āraññikassa nāgassa evaṃ hoti: ‘ahaṃ kho etarahi ākiṇṇo viharāmi hatthīhi hatthinīhi ­hatthi­ka­la­bhehi hatthicchāpehi.

So aparena samayena eko gaṇasmā vūpakaṭṭho viharati, acchinnaggāni ceva tiṇāni khādati, obhag­go­bhag­gañ­cassa sākhābhaṅgaṃ na khādanti, anāvilāni ca pānīyāni pivati, ogāhā cassa uttiṇṇassa na hatthiniyo kāyaṃ upa­nighaṃ­san­tiyo gacchanti.

Tasmiṃ, bhikkhave, samaye āraññikassa nāgassa evaṃ hoti: ‘ahaṃ kho pubbe ākiṇṇo vihāsiṃ hatthīhi hatthinīhi ­hatthi­ka­la­bhehi hatthicchāpehi, chinnaggāni ceva tiṇāni khādiṃ, obhag­go­bhag­gañca me sākhābhaṅgaṃ khādiṃsu, āvilāni ca pānīyāni apāyiṃ, ogāhā ca me uttiṇṇassa hatthiniyo kāyaṃ upa­nighaṃ­san­tiyo agamaṃsu. Sohaṃ etarahi eko gaṇasmā vūpakaṭṭho viharāmi, acchinnaggāni ceva tiṇāni khādāmi, obhag­go­bhag­gañca me sākhābhaṅgaṃ na khādanti, anāvilāni ca pānīyāni pivāmi, ogāhā ca me uttiṇṇassa na hatthiniyo kāyaṃ upa­nighaṃ­san­tiyo gacchantī’ti. So soṇḍāya sākhābhaṅgaṃ bhañjitvā sākhābhaṅgena kāyaṃ parimajjitvā attamano soṇḍaṃ saṃharati.

Evamevaṃ kho, bhikkhave, yasmiṃ samaye bhikkhu ākiṇṇo viharati bhikkhūhi bhikkhunīhi upāsakehi upāsikāhi raññā rāja­mahā­mattehi titthiyehi ­titthi­ya­sā­vakehi, tasmiṃ, bhikkhave, samaye bhikkhussa evaṃ hoti: ‘ahaṃ kho etarahi ākiṇṇo viharāmi bhikkhūhi bhikkhunīhi upāsakehi upāsikāhi raññā rāja­mahā­mattehi titthiyehi ­titthi­ya­sā­vakehi.

So araññagato vā rukkhamūlagato vā suññāgāragato vā nisīdati pallaṅkaṃ ābhujitvā ujuṃ kāyaṃ paṇidhāya parimukhaṃ satiṃ upaṭṭhapetvā.
