Itivuttaka 8

Māna­pariñ­ñā­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Mānaṃ, bhikkhave, anabhijānaṃ aparijānaṃ tattha cittaṃ avirājayaṃ appajahaṃ abhabbo dukkhakkhayāya. Mānañca kho, bhikkhave, abhijānaṃ parijānaṃ tattha cittaṃ virājayaṃ pajahaṃ bhabbo dukkhakkhayāyā”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Mānupetā ayaṃ pajā,
mānaganthā bhave ratā;
Mānaṃ aparijānantā,
āgantāro punabbhavaṃ.

Ye ca mānaṃ pahantvāna,
vimuttā mānasaṅkhaye;
Te māna­gan­thā­bhi­bhuno,
sabba­duk­kha­mupac­cagun”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Aṭṭhamaṃ.
