Itivuttaka 38

Vitakkasutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Tathāgataṃ, bhikkhave, arahantaṃ sammā­sambud­dhaṃ dve vitakkā bahulaṃ samudācaranti—khemo ca vitakko, paviveko ca. Abyāpajjhārāmo, bhikkhave, tathāgato abyāpajjharato. Tamenaṃ, bhikkhave, tathāgataṃ abyāpaj­jhā­rāmaṃ abyāpaj­jha­rataṃ eseva vitakko bahulaṃ samudācarati: ‘imāyāhaṃ iriyāya na kañci byābādhemi tasaṃ vā thāvaraṃ vā’ti.

Pavivekārāmo, bhikkhave, tathāgato pavivekarato. Tamenaṃ, bhikkhave, tathāgataṃ pavivekārāmaṃ pavivekarataṃ eseva vitakko bahulaṃ samudācarati: ‘yaṃ akusalaṃ taṃ pahīnan’ti.

Tasmātiha, bhikkhave, tumhepi abyāpajjhārāmā viharatha abyāpajjharatā. Tesaṃ vo, bhikkhave, tumhākaṃ abyāpaj­jhā­rāmānaṃ viharataṃ abyāpaj­jha­ratānaṃ eseva vitakko bahulaṃ samudā­caris­sati: ‘imāya mayaṃ iriyāya na kañci byābādhema tasaṃ vā thāvaraṃ vā’ti.

Pavivekārāmā, bhikkhave, viharatha pavivekaratā. Tesaṃ vo, bhikkhave, tumhākaṃ ­pavi­vekā­rāmānaṃ viharataṃ ­pavi­veka­ratānaṃ eseva vitakko bahulaṃ samudā­caris­sati: ‘kiṃ akusalaṃ, kiṃ appahīnaṃ, kiṃ pajahāmā’”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Tathāgataṃ buddha­masayha­sā­hinaṃ,
Duve vitakkā samudācaranti naṃ;
Khemo vitakko paṭhamo udīrito,
Tato viveko dutiyo pakāsito.

Tamonudaṃ pāragataṃ mahesiṃ,
Taṃ pattipattaṃ vasimaṃ anāsavaṃ;
Visantaraṃ taṇhakkhaye vimuttaṃ,
Taṃ ve muniṃ antima­deha­dhāriṃ;
Mārañjahaṃ brūmi jarāya pāraguṃ.

Sele yathā pabba­ta­muddha­niṭṭhito,
Yathāpi passe janataṃ samantato;
Tathūpamaṃ dhammamayaṃ sumedho,
Pāsādamāruyha samantacakkhu;
Sokāvatiṇṇaṃ janata­mapeta­soko,
Avekkhati jāti­ja­rā­bhi­bhū­tan”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Paṭhamaṃ.
