“Dhammo have hato hanti,
Nāhato hanti kiñcanaṃ;
Tasmā hi dhammaṃ na hane,
tvaṃ dhammo hato hani. (1)

Alikaṃ bhāsamānassa,
apakkamanti devatā;
Pūtikañca mukhaṃ vāti,
sakaṭṭhānā ca dhaṃsati;
Yo jānaṃ pucchito pañhaṃ,
aññathā naṃ viyākare.

Sace hi saccaṃ bhaṇasi,
hohi rāja yathā pure;
Musā ce bhāsase rāja,
bhūmiyaṃ tiṭṭha cetiya. (2)

Akāle vassatī tassa,
kāle tassa na vassati;
Yo jānaṃ pucchito pañhaṃ,
aññathā naṃ viyākare.

Sace hi saccaṃ bhaṇasi,
hohi rāja yathā pure;
Musā ce bhāsase rāja,
bhūmiṃ pavisa cetiya. (3)

Jivhā tassa dvidhā hoti,
uragasseva disampati;
Yo jānaṃ pucchito pañhaṃ,
aññathā naṃ viyākare.

Sace hi saccaṃ bhaṇasi,
hohi rāja yathā pure;
Musā ce bhāsase rāja,
bhiyyo pavisa cetiya. (4)

Jivhā tassa na bhavati,
macchasseva disampati;
Yo jānaṃ pucchito pañhaṃ,
aññathā naṃ viyākare.

Sace hi saccaṃ bhaṇasi,
hohi rāja yathā pure;
Musā ce bhāsase rāja,
bhiyyo pavisa cetiya. (5)

Thiyova tassa jāyanti,
na pumā jāyare kule;
Yo jānaṃ pucchito pañhaṃ,
aññathā naṃ viyākare.

Sace hi saccaṃ bhaṇasi,
hohi rāja yathā pure;
Musā ce bhāsase rāja,
bhiyyo pavisa cetiya. (6)

Puttā tassa na bhavanti,
pakkamanti disodisaṃ;
Yo jānaṃ pucchito pañhaṃ,
aññathā naṃ viyākare.

Sace hi saccaṃ bhaṇasi,
hohi rāja yathā pure;
Musā ce bhāsase rāja,
bhiyyo pavisa cetiya”. (7)

“Sa rājā isinā satto,
antalikkhacaro pure;
Pāvekkhi pathaviṃ cecco,
hīnatto patva pariyāyaṃ.

Tasmā hi chandāgamanaṃ,
Nappasaṃsanti paṇḍitā;
Aduṭṭhacitto bhāseyya,
Giraṃ sac­cūpa­saṃhi­tanti”. (8)
