Itivuttaka 17

Duti­ya­sekha­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Sekhassa, bhikkhave, bhikkhuno appatta­māna­sassa anuttaraṃ yogakkhemaṃ pat­thayamā­nassa viharato bāhiraṃ aṅganti karitvā nāññaṃ ekaṅgampi samanupassāmi yaṃ evaṃ bahūpakāraṃ yathayidaṃ, bhikkhave, kalyāṇamittatā. Kalyāṇamitto, bhikkhave, bhikkhu akusalaṃ pajahati, kusalaṃ bhāvetī”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Kalyāṇamitto yo bhikkhu,
sappatisso sagāravo;
Karaṃ mittānaṃ vacanaṃ,
sampajāno patissato;
Pāpuṇe anupubbena,
sabba­saṃ­yoja­nak­kha­yan”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Sattamaṃ.
