Itivuttaka 76

Sukha­pattha­nā­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Tīṇimāni, bhikkhave, sukhāni patthayamāno sīlaṃ rakkheyya paṇḍito. Katamāni tīṇi? Pasaṃsā me āgacchatūti sīlaṃ rakkheyya paṇḍito, bhogā me uppajjantūti sīlaṃ rakkheyya paṇḍito, kāyassa bhedā paraṃ maraṇā sugatiṃ saggaṃ lokaṃ upapaj­jis­sāmīti sīlaṃ rakkheyya paṇḍito. Imāni kho, bhikkhave, tīṇi sukhāni patthayamāno sīlaṃ rakkheyya paṇḍito”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Sīlaṃ rakkheyya medhāvī,
patthayāno tayo sukhe;
Pasaṃsaṃ vittalābhañca,
pecca sagge pamodanaṃ.

Akarontopi ce pāpaṃ,
karonta­mupa­sevati;
Saṅkiyo hoti pāpasmiṃ,
avaṇṇo cassa rūhati.

Yādisaṃ kurute mittaṃ,
yādisaṃ cūpasevati;
Sa ve tādisako hoti,
sahavāso hi tādiso.

Sevamāno sevamānaṃ,
samphuṭṭho samphusaṃ paraṃ;
Saro diddho kalāpaṃva,
alitta­mu­palim­pati;
Upalepabhayā dhīro,
neva pāpasakhā siyā.

Pūtimacchaṃ kusaggena,
yo naro upanayhati;
Kusāpi pūti vāyanti,
evaṃ bālūpasevanā.

Tagarañca palāsena,
yo naro upanayhati;
Pattāpi surabhi vāyanti,
evaṃ dhīrūpasevanā.

Tasmā pattapuṭasseva,
ñatvā sampākamattano;
Asante nupaseveyya,
sante seveyya paṇḍito;
Asanto nirayaṃ nenti,
santo pāpenti suggatin”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Sattamaṃ.
