Ajātasutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Atthi, bhikkhave, ajātaṃ abhūtaṃ akataṃ asaṅkhataṃ. No cetaṃ, bhikkhave, abhavissa ajātaṃ abhūtaṃ akataṃ asaṅkhataṃ, nayidha jātassa bhūtassa katassa saṅkhatassa nissaraṇaṃ paññāyetha. Yasmā ca kho, bhikkhave, atthi ajātaṃ abhūtaṃ akataṃ asaṅkhataṃ, tasmā jātassa bhūtassa katassa saṅkhatassa nissaraṇaṃ paññāyatī”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Jātaṃ bhūtaṃ samuppannaṃ,
kataṃ saṅ­kha­ta­mad­dhuvaṃ;
­Jarāma­raṇa­saṅghā­ṭaṃ,
roganīḷaṃ pabhaṅguraṃ.

Āhāra­nettip­pabha­vaṃ,
nālaṃ tada­bhinan­di­tuṃ;
Tassa nissaraṇaṃ santaṃ,
atakkāvacaraṃ dhuvaṃ.

Ajātaṃ asamuppannaṃ,
asokaṃ virajaṃ padaṃ;
Nirodho duk­kha­dhammānaṃ,
saṅkhārūpasamo sukho”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Chaṭṭhaṃ.
