Devadattasutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Tīhi, bhikkhave, asaddhammehi abhibhūto ­pariyā­dinna­citto devadatto āpāyiko nerayiko kappaṭṭho atekiccho. Katamehi tīhi? Pāpicchatāya, bhikkhave, abhibhūto ­pariyā­dinna­citto devadatto āpāyiko nerayiko kappaṭṭho atekiccho. Pāpamittatāya, bhikkhave, abhibhūto ­pariyā­dinna­citto devadatto āpāyiko nerayiko kappaṭṭho atekiccho. Sati kho pana uttarikaraṇīye oramattakena visesā­dhi­gamena antarā vosānaṃ āpādi. Imehi kho, bhikkhave, tīhi asaddhammehi abhibhūto ­pariyā­dinna­citto devadatto āpāyiko nerayiko kappaṭṭho atekiccho”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati:

“Mā jātu koci lokasmiṃ,
pāpiccho udapajjatha;
Tadamināpi jānātha,
pāpicchānaṃ yathā gati.

Paṇḍitoti samaññāto,
bhāvitattoti sammato;
Jalaṃva yasasā aṭṭhā,
devadattoti vissuto.

So samāna­manu­ciṇṇo,
āsajja naṃ tathāgataṃ;
Avīcinirayaṃ patto,
catudvāraṃ bhayānakaṃ.

Aduṭṭhassa hi yo dubbhe,
pāpakammaṃ akubbato;
Tameva pāpaṃ phusati,
duṭṭhacittaṃ anādaraṃ.

Samuddaṃ visakumbhena,
yo maññeyya padūsituṃ;
Na so tena padūseyya,
bhesmā hi udadhi mahā.

Evamevaṃ tathāgataṃ,
yo vādena vihiṃsati;
Sammaggataṃ santacittaṃ,
vādo tamhi na rūhati.

Tādisaṃ mittaṃ kubbetha,
tañca seveyya paṇḍito;
Yassa maggānugo bhikkhu,
khayaṃ dukkhassa pāpuṇe”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Dasamaṃ.

Catuttho vaggo.

Vitak­kā­sakkā­ra­sadda,
cavanaloke asubhaṃ;
Dhamma­andha­kā­ra­malaṃ,
devadattena te dasāti.
