Itivuttaka 94

Upapa­rikkha­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Tathā tathā, bhikkhave, bhikkhu upaparikkheyya yathā yathāssa upaparikkhato bahiddhā cassa viññāṇaṃ avikkhittaṃ avisaṭaṃ ajjhattaṃ asaṇṭhitaṃ anupādāya na paritasseyya. Bahiddhā, bhikkhave, viññāṇe avikkhitte avisaṭe sati ajjhattaṃ asaṇṭhite anupādāya aparitassato āyatiṃ jāti­jarāma­raṇa­duk­kha­sa­muda­ya­sam­bhavo na hotī”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati:

“Satta­saṅ­gappa­hīnassa,
nettic­chinnassa bhikkhuno;
Vikkhīṇo jātisaṃsāro,
natthi tassa punabbhavo”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Pañcamaṃ.
