Ahu rājā videhānaṃ,

Paṇḍite sutasampanne,

Vijayañca sunāmañca,

Tamanupucchi vedeho,
“paccekaṃ brūtha saṃ ruciṃ;
Cātumāsā komudajja,

Tato senāpati rañño,
Alāto etadabravi;
“Haṭṭhaṃ yoggaṃ balaṃ sabbaṃ,
Senaṃ sannāhayāmase.

Niyyāma deva yuddhāya,
ananta­bala­porisā;
Ye te vasaṃ na āyanti,

Esā mayhaṃ sakā diṭṭhi,

Alātassa vaco sutvā,

“Sabbe tuyhaṃ mahārāja,

Annapānañca khajjañca,

Ramassu deva kāmehi,

Sunāmassa vaco sutvā,

Vijayassa vaco sutvā,

Sabbeva santā karotha matiṃ,
Kaṃ upāsemu paṇḍitaṃ;

Vedehassa vaco sutvā,

Taṃ deva payirupāsemu,

“Vedhāmi rukkho viya chijjamāno,
Disaṃ na jānāmi pamūḷhasañño;
Bhayānutappāmi mahā ca me bhayā,
Sutvāna kathā tava bhāsitā ise.

Āditte vārimajjhaṃva,

Andhakāreva pajjoto,

Atthañca dhammaṃ anusāsa maṃ ise,
Atītamaddhā aparādhitaṃ mayā;
Ācikkha me nārada suddhimaggaṃ,
Yathā ahaṃ no nirayaṃ pateyyaṃ”.
