Itivuttaka 1

Lobhasutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Ekadhammaṃ, bhikkhave, pajahatha; ahaṃ vo pāṭibhogo anāgāmitāya. Katamaṃ ekadhammaṃ? Lobhaṃ, bhikkhave, ekadhammaṃ pajahatha; ahaṃ vo pāṭibhogo anāgāmitāyā”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Yena lobhena luddhāse,
sattā gacchanti duggatiṃ;
Taṃ lobhaṃ sammadaññāya,
pajahanti vipassino;
Pahāya na punāyanti,
imaṃ lokaṃ kudācanan”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Paṭhamaṃ.
