Itivuttaka 9

Lobha­pariñ­ñā­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

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

“Yena lobhena luddhāse,
sattā gacchanti duggatiṃ;
Taṃ lobhaṃ sammadaññāya,
pajahanti vipassino;
Pahāya na punāyanti,
imaṃ lokaṃ kudācanan”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Navamaṃ.
