6. Yudhañ­caya­jātaka

Mit­tāmacca­parib­yūḷhaṃ,
ahaṃ vande rathesabhaṃ;
Pabba­jis­sā­mahaṃ rāja,
taṃ devo anumaññatu”.

“Sace te ūnaṃ kāmehi,
ahaṃ paripūrayāmi te;
Yo taṃ hiṃsati vāremi,
pabbaja yudhañcaya”.

“Na matthi ūnaṃ kāmehi,
hiṃsitā me na vijjati;
Dīpañca kātumicchāmi,
yaṃ jarā nābhikīrati”.

“Putto vā pitaraṃ yāce,
pitā vā puttamorasaṃ;
Negamo taṃ yāce tāta,
mā pabbaja yudhañcaya”.

“Mā maṃ deva nivārehi,
pabbajantaṃ rathesabha;
Māhaṃ kāmehi sammatto,
jarāya vasamanvagū”.

“Ahaṃ taṃ tāta yācāmi,
ahaṃ putta nivāraye;
Ciraṃ taṃ daṭṭhumicchāmi,
mā pabbaja yudhañcaya”.

“Ussāvova tiṇaggamhi,
sūriyuggamanaṃ pati;
Evamāyu manussānaṃ,
mā maṃ amma nivāraya”.

“Taramāno imaṃ yānaṃ,
āropetu rathesabha;
Mā me mātā tarantassa,
antarāyakarā ahu”.

“Abhidhāvatha bhaddante,
suññaṃ hessati rammakaṃ;
Yudhañcayo anuññāto,
sabbadattena rājinā.

Yohu seṭṭho sahassassa,
yuvā kañ­cana­sanni­bho;
Soyaṃ kumāro pabbajito,
kāsāyavasano balī”.

“Ubho kumārā pabbajitā,
yudhañcayo yudhiṭṭhilo;
Pahāya mātāpitaro,
saṅgaṃ chetvāna maccuno”ti.

Yudhañ­caya­jātakaṃ chaṭṭhaṃ.
