Itivuttaka 4

Kodhasutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Ekadhammaṃ, bhikkhave, pajahatha; ahaṃ vo pāṭibhogo anāgāmitāya. Katamaṃ ekadhammaṃ? Kodhaṃ, bhikkhave, ekadhammaṃ pajahatha; ahaṃ vo pāṭibhogo anāgāmitāyā”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Yena kodhena kuddhāse,
sattā gacchanti duggatiṃ;
Taṃ kodhaṃ sammadaññāya,
pajahanti vipassino;
Pahāya na punāyanti,
imaṃ lokaṃ kudācanan”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Catutthaṃ.
