Itivuttaka 35

Paṭha­ma­janana­kuhana­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Nayidaṃ, bhikkhave, brahmacariyaṃ vussati jana­ku­hanat­thaṃ, na janala­panat­thaṃ, na lābhasakkā­ra­silokā­ni­saṃsat­thaṃ, na ‘iti maṃ jano jānātū’ti. Atha kho idaṃ, bhikkhave, brahmacariyaṃ vussati saṃ­varat­thañ­ceva pahānatthañcā”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Saṃvaratthaṃ pahānatthaṃ,
brahmacariyaṃ anītihaṃ;
Adesayi so bhagavā,
nibbā­nogadha­gā­minaṃ.

Esa maggo mahattehi,
anuyāto mahesibhi;
Ye ye taṃ paṭipajjanti,
yathā buddhena desitaṃ;
Dukkhassantaṃ karissanti,
satthu­sāsana­kārino”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Aṭṭhamaṃ.
