4. Saṅ­kha­pāla­jātaka

“Ariyāvakāsosi pasannanetto,
Maññe bhavaṃ pabbajito kulamhā;
Kathaṃ nu vittāni pahāya bhoge,
Pabbaji nikkhamma gharā sapañña”.

“Sayaṃ vimānaṃ naradeva disvā,
Mahānubhāvassa mahoragassa;
Disvāna puññāna mahāvipākaṃ,
Saddhāyahaṃ pabbajitomhi rāja”.

“Na kāmakāmā na bhayā na dosā,
Vācaṃ musā pabbajitā bhaṇanti;
Akkhāhi me pucchito etamatthaṃ,
Sutvāna me jāyihi­tippa­sādo”.

Vāṇijja raṭṭhādhipa gacchamāno,
Pathe addasāsimhi bhojaputte;
Pavaddhakāyaṃ uragaṃ mahantaṃ,
Ādāya gacchante pamodamāne.

Sohaṃ samāgamma janinda tehi,
Pahaṭṭhalomo avacamhi bhīto;
‘Kuhiṃ ayaṃ nīyati bhīmakāyo,
Nāgena kiṃ kāhatha bhojaputtā’.

‘Nāgo ayaṃ nīyati bhojanatthā,
Pavaddhakāyo urago mahanto;
Sāduñca thūlañca muduñca maṃsaṃ,
Na tvaṃ rasaññāsi videhaputta.

Ito mayaṃ gantvā sakaṃ niketaṃ,
Ādāya satthāni vikopayitvā;
Maṃsāni bhokkhāma pamodamānā,
Mayañhi ve sattavo pannagānaṃ’.

‘Sace ayaṃ nīyati bhojanatthā,
Pavaddhakāyo urago mahanto;
Dadāmi vo balibaddāni soḷasa,
Nāgaṃ imaṃ muñcatha bandhanasmā’.

‘Addhā hi no bhakkho ayaṃ manāpo,
Bahū ca no uragā bhuttapubbā;
Karoma te taṃ vacanaṃ aḷāra,
Mittañca no hohi videhaputta’.

Tadāssu te bandhanā mocayiṃsu,
Yaṃ natthuto paṭimokkassa pāse;
Mutto ca so bandhanā nāgarājā,
Pakkāmi pācīnamukho muhuttaṃ.

Gantvāna pācīnamukho muhuttaṃ,
Puṇṇehi nettehi palokayī maṃ;
Tadāssahaṃ piṭṭhito anvagacchiṃ,
Dasaṅguliṃ añjaliṃ paggahetvā.

‘Gaccheva kho tvaṃ taramānarūpo,
Mā taṃ amittā punaraggahesuṃ;
Dukkho hi luddehi punā samāgamo,
Adassanaṃ bhojaputtāna gaccha’.

Agamāsi so rahadaṃ vippasannaṃ,
Nīlobhāsaṃ ramaṇīyaṃ sutitthaṃ;
Samotataṃ jambuhi vetasāhi,
Pāvekkhi nittiṇṇabhayo patīto.

So taṃ pavissa na cirassa nāgo,
Dibbena me pāturahuṃ janinda;
Upaṭṭhahī maṃ pitaraṃva putto,
Hadayaṅgamaṃ kaṇṇasukhaṃ bhaṇanto.

‘Tvaṃ mesi mātā ca pitā aḷāra,
Abbhantaro pāṇadado sahāyo;
Sakañca iddhiṃ paṭilābhakosmi,
Aḷāra passa me nivesanāni;
Pahūtabhakkhaṃ bahuannapānaṃ,
Masakkasāraṃ viya vāsavassa.

Taṃ bhūmibhāgehi upetarūpaṃ,
Asakkharā ceva mudū subhā ca;
Nīcattiṇā apparajā ca bhūmi,
Pāsādikā yattha jahanti sokaṃ.

Anāvakulā veḷuriyūpanīlā,
Catuddisaṃ ambavanaṃ surammaṃ;
Pakkā ca pesī ca phalā suphullā,
Niccotukā dhārayantī phalāni’.

Tesaṃ vanānaṃ naradeva majjhe,
Nivesanaṃ bhassa­ra­sanni­kāsaṃ;
Rajataggaḷaṃ sovaṇṇamayaṃ uḷāraṃ,
Obhāsatī vijju­ri­vanta­likkhe.

Maṇīmayā soṇṇamayā uḷārā,
Anekacittā satataṃ sunimmitā;
Paripūrā kaññāhi alaṅkatābhi,
Suvaṇṇa­kā­yū­radharāhi rāja.

So saṅkhapālo taramānarūpo,
Pāsādamāruyha anomavaṇṇo;
Sahas­sa­tham­bhaṃ atulānubhāvaṃ,
Yatthassa bhariyā mahesī ahosi.

Ekā ca nārī taramānarūpā,
Ādāya veḷuriyamayaṃ mahagghaṃ;
Subhaṃ maṇiṃ jāti­man­tū­papan­naṃ,
Acoditā āsana­mab­bhihāsi.

Tato maṃ urago hatthe gahetvā,
Nisīdayī ­pāmu­kha­āsanas­miṃ;
‘Idamāsanaṃ atra bhavaṃ nisīdatu,
Bhavañhi me aññataro garūnaṃ’.

Aññā ca nārī taramānarūpā,
Ādāya vāriṃ upasaṅkamitvā;
Pādāni pakkhālayī me janinda,
Bhariyāva bhattū patino piyassa.

Aparā ca nārī taramānarūpā,
Paggayha sovaṇṇamayāya pātiyā;
Anekasūpaṃ vividhaṃ viyañjanaṃ,
Upanāmayī bhatta manuññarūpaṃ.

Turiyehi maṃ bhārata bhuttavantaṃ,
Upaṭṭhahuṃ bhattu mano viditvā;
Tatuttariṃ maṃ nipatī mahantaṃ,
Dibbehi kāmehi anappakehi.

‘Bhariyā mametā tisatā aḷāra,
Sabbattamajjhā padumuttarābhā;
Aḷāra etāssu te kāmakārā,
Dadāmi te tā paricārayassu’.

Saṃvaccharaṃ dib­barasā­nu­bhutvā,
Tadāssuhaṃ uttari­maj­jhabhā­siṃ;
‘Nāgassidaṃ kinti kathañca laddhaṃ,
Kathaj­jha­ga­māsi vimānaseṭṭhaṃ.

Adhiccaladdhaṃ pariṇāmajaṃ te,
Sayaṃkataṃ udāhu devehi dinnaṃ;
Pucchāmi taṃ nāgarā­je­tamat­thaṃ,
Kathaj­jha­ga­māsi vimānaseṭṭhaṃ’.

‘­Nādhic­ca­laddhaṃ na pariṇāmajaṃ me,
Na sayaṃkataṃ nāpi devehi dinnaṃ;
Sakehi kammehi apāpakehi,
Puññehi me laddhamidaṃ vimānaṃ’.

‘Kiṃ te vataṃ kiṃ pana brahmacariyaṃ,
Kissa suciṇṇassa ayaṃ vipāko;
Akkhāhi me nāgarā­je­tamat­thaṃ,
Kathaṃ nu te laddhamidaṃ vimānaṃ’.

‘Rājā ahosiṃ maga­dhā­namissaro,
Duyyodhano nāma mahānubhāvo;
So ittaraṃ jīvitaṃ saṃviditvā,
Asassataṃ vipari­ṇāma­dhammaṃ.

Annañca pānañca pasannacitto,
Sakkacca dānaṃ vipulaṃ adāsiṃ;
Opānabhūtaṃ me gharaṃ tadāsi,
Santappitā samaṇabrāhmaṇā ca.

Mālañca gandhañca vilepanañca,
Padīpiyaṃ yāna­mu­passa­yañca;
Acchādanaṃ seyya­ma­thanna­pānaṃ,
Sakkacca dānāni adamha tattha
.

Taṃ me vataṃ taṃ pana brahmacariyaṃ,
Tassa suciṇṇassa ayaṃ vipāko;
Teneva me laddhamidaṃ vimānaṃ,
Pahūtabhakkhaṃ bahuannapānaṃ;
Naccehi gītehi cupetarūpaṃ,
Ciraṭṭhitikaṃ na ca sassatāyaṃ’.

‘Appānubhāvā taṃ mahānubhāvaṃ,
Tejassinaṃ hanti atejavanto;
Kimeva dāṭhāvudha kiṃ paṭicca,
Hatthat­ta­māgac­chi vanibbakānaṃ.

Bhayaṃ nu te anvagataṃ mahantaṃ,
Tejo nu te nānvagaṃ dantamūlaṃ;
Kimeva dāṭhāvudha kiṃ paṭicca,
Kilesamāpajji vanibbakānaṃ’.

‘Na me bhayaṃ anvagataṃ mahantaṃ,
Tejo na sakkā mama tehi hantuṃ;
Satañca dhammāni sukittitāni,
Samuddavelāva duraccayāni.

Cātuddasiṃ pañcadasiṃ aḷāra,
Uposathaṃ nicca­mupā­va­sāmi;
Athāgamuṃ soḷasa bhojaputtā,
Rajjuṃ gahetvāna daḷhañca pāsaṃ.

Bhetvāna nāsaṃ atikassa rajjuṃ,
Nayiṃsu maṃ samparigayha luddā;
Etādisaṃ dukkhamahaṃ titikkhaṃ,
Uposathaṃ appa­ṭiko­payanto’.

‘Ekāyane taṃ pathe addasaṃsu,
Balena vaṇṇena cupetarūpaṃ;
Siriyā paññāya ca bhāvitosi,
Kiṃ patthayaṃ nāga tapo karosi’.

‘Na puttahetū na dhanassa hetu,
Na āyuno cāpi aḷāra hetu;
Manussayoniṃ abhipatthayāno,
Tasmā parakkamma tapo karomi’.

‘Tvaṃ lohitakkho vihatantaraṃso,
Alaṅkato kap­pi­ta­kesa­massu;
Surosito lohita­canda­nena,
Gandhab­ba­rājāva disā pabhāsasi.

Devid­dhi­pat­tosi mahānubhāvo,
Sabbehi kāmehi samaṅgibhūto;
Pucchāmi taṃ nāgarā­je­tamat­thaṃ,
Seyyo ito kena manussaloko’.

‘Aḷāra nāññatra manussalokā,
Suddhī va saṃvijjati saṃyamo vā;
Ahañca laddhāna manussayoniṃ,
Kāhāmi jātimaraṇassa antaṃ’.

‘Saṃvaccharo me vasato tavantike,
Annena pānena upaṭṭhitosmi;
Āmantayitvāna palemi nāga,
Cirappa­vutthosmi ahaṃ janinda’.

‘Puttā ca dārā anujīvino ca,
Niccānusiṭṭhā upatiṭ­ṭha­thetaṃ;
Kaccinnu taṃ nābhisapittha koci,
Piyañhi me dassanaṃ tuyhaṃ aḷāra’.

‘Yathāpi mātū ca pitū agāre,
Putto piyo paṭivihito vaseyya;
Tatopi mayhaṃ idhameva seyyo,
Cittañhi te nāga mayī pasannaṃ’.

‘Maṇī mamaṃ vijjati lohitaṅko,
Dhanāharo maṇiratanaṃ uḷāraṃ;
Ādāya tvaṃ gaccha sakaṃ niketaṃ,
Laddhā dhanaṃ taṃ maṇimossajassu’.

Diṭṭhā mayā mānusakāpi kāmā,
Asassatā vipari­ṇāma­dhammā;
Ādīnavaṃ kāmaguṇesu disvā,
Saddhāyahaṃ pabbajitomhi rāja.

Dumapphalānīva patanti māṇavā,
Daharā ca vuddhā ca sarīrabhedā;
Etampi disvā pabbajitomhi rāja,
Apaṇṇakaṃ sāmaññameva seyyo”.

“Addhā have sevitabbā sapaññā,
Bahussutā ye bahu­ṭhāna­cintino;
Nāgañca sutvāna tavañcaḷāra,
Kāhāmi puññāni anappakāni”.

“Addhā have sevitabbā sapaññā,
Bahussutā ye bahu­ṭhāna­cintino;
Nāgañca sutvāna mamañca rāja,
Karohi puññāni anappakānī”ti.
