2. Manojajātaka

“Yathā cāpo ninnamati,
jiyā cāpi nikūjati;
Haññate nūna manojo,
migarājā sakhā mama.

Handa dāni vanantāni,
pakkamāmi yathāsukhaṃ;
Netādisā sakhā honti,
labbhā me jīvato sakhā”.

“Na pāpajana­saṃ­sevī,
accantaṃ sukhamedhati;
Manojaṃ passa semānaṃ,
­giriyas­sānu­sāsanī”.

“Na pāpa­sam­pa­vaṅ­kena,
mātā puttena nandati;
Manojaṃ passa semānaṃ,
acchannaṃ samhi lohite”.

“Evamāpajjate poso,
pāpiyo ca nigacchati;
Yo ve hitānaṃ vacanaṃ,
na karoti atthadassinaṃ”.

“Evañca so hoti tato ca pāpiyo,
Yo uttamo adhama­janūpa­sevī;
Passuttamaṃ adhama­ja­nū­pa­sevi­taṃ,
Migādhipaṃ ­sarava­ravega­niddhutaṃ”.

“Nihīyati puriso nihīnasevī,
Na ca hāyetha kadāci tulyasevī;
Seṭṭha­mupaga­maṃ udeti khippaṃ,
Tasmāttanā uttaritaraṃ bhajethā”ti.

Manojajātakaṃ dutiyaṃ.
