Itivuttaka 24

Aṭṭhi­puñja­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Ekapuggalassa, bhikkhave, kappaṃ sandhāvato saṃsarato siyā evaṃ mahā aṭṭhikaṅkalo aṭṭhipuñjo aṭṭhirāsi yathāyaṃ vepullo pabbato, sace saṃhārako assa, sambhatañca na vinasseyyā”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Ekassekena kappena,
­pugga­las­saṭṭhi­sañ­cayo;
Siyā pabbatasamo rāsi,
iti vuttaṃ mahesinā.

So kho panāyaṃ akkhāto,
vepullo pabbato mahā;
Uttaro gijjhakūṭassa,
magadhānaṃ giribbaje.

Yato ca ariyasaccāni,
sammappaññāya passati;
Dukkhaṃ duk­kha­sa­muppādaṃ,
dukkhassa ca atikkamaṃ;
Ariyañ­caṭṭhaṅ­gikaṃ maggaṃ,
duk­khū­pasa­ma­gā­minaṃ.

Sa sattakkhattuṃ paramaṃ,
sandhāvitvāna puggalo;
Duk­khas­santa­karo hoti,
sabba­saṃ­yoja­nak­khayā”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Catutthaṃ.
