7. Siṅgha­puppha­jātaka

Yametaṃ vārijaṃ pupphaṃ,
Adinnaṃ upasiṅghasi;
Ekaṅgametaṃ theyyānaṃ,
Gandhathenosi mārisa”.

“Na harāmi na bhañjāmi,
ārā siṅghāmi vārijaṃ;
Atha kena nu vaṇṇena,
gandhathenoti vuccati.

Yoyaṃ bhisāni khaṇati,
puṇḍarīkāni bhañjati;
Evaṃ ākiṇṇakammanto,
kasmā eso na vuccati”.

“Ākiṇṇaluddo puriso,
dhāticelaṃva makkhito;
Tasmiṃ me vacanaṃ natthi,
tañcārahāmi vattave.

Anaṅgaṇassa posassa,
niccaṃ sucigavesino;
Vālaggamattaṃ pāpassa,
abbhāmattaṃva khāyati”.

“Addhā maṃ yakkha jānāsi,
atho maṃ anukampasi;
Punapi yakkha vajjāsi,
yadā passasi edisaṃ”.

“Neva taṃ upajīvāmi,
napi te bhatakāmhase;
Tvameva bhikkhu jāneyya,
yena gaccheyya suggatin”ti.

Siṅgha­puppha­jātakaṃ sattamaṃ.
