Itivuttaka 16

Paṭha­ma­sekha­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Sekhassa, bhikkhave, bhikkhuno appatta­māna­sassa anuttaraṃ yogakkhemaṃ pat­thayamā­nassa viharato ajjhattikaṃ aṅganti karitvā nāññaṃ ekaṅgampi samanupassāmi yaṃ evaṃ bahūpakāraṃ yathayidaṃ, bhikkhave, yoniso manasikāro. Yoniso, bhikkhave, bhikkhu manasi karonto akusalaṃ pajahati, kusalaṃ bhāvetī”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Yoniso­ma­nasikāro,
dhammo sekhassa bhikkhuno;
Natthañño evaṃ bahukāro,
uttamatthassa pattiyā;
Yoniso padahaṃ bhikkhu,
khayaṃ dukkhassa pāpuṇe”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Chaṭṭhaṃ.
