Itivuttaka 15

Taṇhā­saṃ­yoja­na­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Nāhaṃ, bhikkhave, aññaṃ eka­saṃ­yoja­nampi samanupassāmi yena saṃyojanena saṃyuttā sattā dīgharattaṃ sandhāvanti saṃsaranti yathayidaṃ, bhikkhave, taṇhā­saṃ­yoja­naṃ. Taṇhā­saṃ­yoja­nena hi, bhikkhave, saṃyuttā sattā dīgharattaṃ sandhāvanti saṃsarantī”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati:

“Taṇhādutiyo puriso,
dīghamaddhāna saṃsaraṃ;
Ittha­bhā­vañña­thā­bhāvaṃ,
saṃsāraṃ nātivattati.

Etamādīnavaṃ ñatvā,
Taṇhaṃ dukkhassa sambhavaṃ;
Vītataṇho anādāno,
Sato bhikkhu paribbaje”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Pañcamaṃ.
