“Paṇḍu kisiyāsi dubbalā,
Vaṇṇarūpaṃ natavedisaṃ pure;
Vimale akkhāhi pucchitā,
Kīdisī tuyhaṃ sarīravedanā”.

“Dhammo manujesu mātīnaṃ,
Dohaḷo nāma janinda vuccati;
Dhammāhataṃ nāgakuñjara,
Vidhurassa hadayā­bhi­patthaye”.

“Candaṃ kho tvaṃ dohaḷāyasi,
Sūriyaṃ vā atha vāpi mālutaṃ;
Dullabhañhi vidhurassa dassanaṃ,
Ko vidhuramidha mānayissati”.

“Kiṃ nu tāta tuvaṃ pajjhāyasi,
Padumaṃ hatthagataṃva te mukhaṃ;
Kiṃ nu dummanarūposi issara,
Mā tvaṃ soci amittatāpana”.

“Mātā hi tava irandhati,
Vidhurassa hadayaṃ dhaniyati;
Dullabhañhi vidhurassa dassanaṃ,
Ko vidhuramidha mānayissati.

Tassa bhattu­pari­yesanaṃ cara,
Yo vidhuramidha mānayissati”;
Pituno ca sā sutvāna vākyaṃ,
Rattiṃ nikkhamma avassutiṃ cari.

“Ke gandhabbe rakkhase ca nāge,
Ke kimpurise cāpi mānuse;
Ke paṇḍite sabbakāmadade,
Dīgharattaṃ bhattā me bhavissati”.

“Assāsa hessāmi te pati,
Bhattā te hessāmi anindalocane;
Paññā hi mamaṃ tathāvidhā,
Assāsa hessasi bhariyā mama”.

Avacāsi puṇṇakaṃ irandhatī,
Pub­bapathā­nu­gatena cetasā;
“Ehi gacchāma pitu mamantike,
Esova te etamatthaṃ pavakkhati”.

Alaṅkatā suvasanā,
mālinī candanussadā;
Yakkhaṃ hatthe gahetvāna,
pitu­santi­kupāgami.

“Nāgavara vaco suṇohi me,
Patirūpaṃ paṭipajja suṅkiyaṃ;
Patthemi ahaṃ irandhatiṃ,
Tāya samaṅgiṃ karohi maṃ tuvaṃ.

Sataṃ hatthī sataṃ assā,
sataṃ assatarīrathā;
Sataṃ valabhiyo puṇṇā,
nānāratnassa kevalā;
Te nāga paṭipajjassu,
dhītaraṃ dehirandhatiṃ”.

“Yāva āmantaye ñātī,
mitte ca suhadajjane;
Anāmanta kataṃ kammaṃ,
taṃ pacchā anutappati”.

Tato so varuṇo nāgo,
pavisitvā nivesanaṃ;
Bhariyaṃ āmantayitvāna,
idaṃ vacanamabravi.

“Ayaṃ so puṇṇako yakkho,
yācatī maṃ irandhatiṃ;
Bahunā vittalābhena,
tassa dema piyaṃ mamaṃ”.

“Na dhanena na vittena,
Labbhā amhaṃ irandhatī;
Sace ca kho hadayaṃ paṇḍitassa,
Dhammena laddhā idha māhareyya;
Etena vittena kumāri labbhā,
Nāññaṃ dhanaṃ uttari patthayāma”.

Tato so varuṇo nāgo,
nikkhamitvā nivesanā;

Sace tuvaṃ hadayaṃ paṇḍitassa,
Dhammena laddhā idha māharesi;

Nāññaṃ dhanaṃ uttari patthayāma”.

“Yaṃ paṇḍitotyeke vadanti loke,
Tameva bāloti punāhu aññe;
Akkhāhi me vippavadanti ettha,
Kaṃ paṇḍitaṃ nāga tuvaṃ vadesi”.

“Korabyarājassa dhanañcayassa,
Yadi te suto vidhuro nāma kattā;
Ānehi taṃ paṇḍitaṃ dhammaladdhā,
Irandhatī padacarā te hotu”.

Idañca sutvā varuṇassa vākyaṃ,
Uṭṭhāya yakkho paramappatīto;
Tattheva santo purisaṃ asaṃsi,
“Ānehi ājaññamidheva yuttaṃ.

Jātarūpamayā kaṇṇā,

So puṇṇako kāmarāgena giddho,
Irandhatiṃ nāgakaññaṃ jigīsaṃ;
Gantvāna taṃ bhūtapatiṃ yasassiṃ,
Iccabravī vessavaṇaṃ kuveraṃ.

“Bhogavatī nāma mandire,
Vāsā hiraññavatīti vuccati;

Maṇḍalassa uragassa niṭṭhitaṃ.

Sa puṇṇako attamano udaggo,
Irandhatiṃ nāgakaññaṃ labhitvā;
Haṭṭhena bhāvena patītarūpo,
Iccabravi kurūnaṃ kattuseṭṭhaṃ.

“Bhariyāya maṃ tvaṃ akari samaṅgiṃ,
Ahañca te vidhura karomi kiccaṃ;
Idañca te maṇiratanaṃ dadāmi,
Ajjeva taṃ kuruyo pāpayāmi”.

“Ajeyyamesā tava hotu metti,
Bhariyāya kaccāna piyāya saddhiṃ;
Ānandi vitto sumano patīto,
Datvā maṇiṃ mañca nayindapatthaṃ”.

Sa puṇṇako kurūnaṃ kattuseṭṭhaṃ,
Nisīdayī purato āsanasmiṃ;
Ādāya kattā­ra­mano­mapaññaṃ,
Upānayī nagaraṃ indapatthaṃ.

Mano manussassa yathāpi gacche,
Tatopissa khippataraṃ ahosi;
Sa puṇṇako kurūnaṃ kattuseṭṭhaṃ,
Upānayī nagaraṃ indapatthaṃ.

“Etindapatthaṃ nagaraṃ padissati,
Rammāni ca ambavanāni bhāgaso;
Ahañca bhariyāya samaṅgibhūto,
Tuvañca pattosi sakaṃ niketaṃ”.

Sa puṇṇako kurūnaṃ kattuseṭṭhaṃ,
Oropiya dhammasabhāya majjhe;
Ājaññamāruyha anomavaṇṇo,
Pakkāmi vehāya­saman­ta­likkhe.

Taṃ disvā rājā paramappatīto,
Uṭṭhāya bāhāhi palissajitvā;
Avikampayaṃ dhammasabhāya majjhe,
Nisīdayī ­pamu­kha­māsanas­miṃ.

“Tvaṃ no vinetāsi rathaṃva naddhaṃ,
Nandanti taṃ kuruyo dassanena;
Akkhāhi me pucchito etamatthaṃ,
Kathaṃ pamokkho ahu māṇavassa”.

“Yaṃ māṇa­vot­yā­bhivadī janinda,
Na so manusso naravīraseṭṭha;
Yadi te suto puṇṇako nāma yakkho,
Rañño kuverassa hi so sajibbo.

Bhūmindharo varuṇo nāma nāgo,
Brahā sucī vaṇṇa­balū­papanno;
Tassānujaṃ dhītaraṃ kāmayāno,
Irandhatī nāma sā nāgakaññā.

Tassā sumajjhāya piyāya hetu,
Patārayittha maraṇāya mayhaṃ;
So ceva bhariyāya samaṅgibhūto,
Ahañca anuññāto maṇi ca laddho”.

“Rukkho hi mayhaṃ padvāre sujāto,
Paññākkhandho sīlamayassa sākhā;
Atthe ca dhamme ca ṭhito nipāko,
Gavapphalo hatthi­ga­vāssa­channo.

Nacca­gīta­tūri­yā­bhinā­dite,
Ucchijja senaṃ puriso ahāsi;
So no ayaṃ āgato sanniketaṃ,
Rukkhas­simas­sāpaci­tiṃ karotha.

Ye keci vittā mama paccayena,
Sabbeva te pātukarontu ajja;
Tibbāni katvāna upāyanāni,
Rukkhas­simas­sāpaci­tiṃ karotha.

Ye keci baddhā mama atthi raṭṭhe,
Sabbeva te bandhanā mocayantu;
Yatheva yaṃ bandhanasmā pamutto,
Evamete muñcare bandhanasmā.

Unnaṅgalā māsamimaṃ karontu,
Maṃsodanaṃ brāhmaṇā bhakkhayantu;
Amajjapā majjarahā pivantu,
Puṇṇāhi thālāhi palissutāhi.

Mahāpathaṃ nicca samavhayantu,
Tibbañca rakkhaṃ vidahantu raṭṭhe;
Yathāññamaññaṃ na viheṭhayeyyuṃ,
Rukkhas­simas­sāpaci­tiṃ karotha”.

Orodhā ca kumārā ca,
vesiyānā ca brāhmaṇā;
Bahuṃ annañca pānañca,
­paṇ­ḍitas­sā­bhihā­ra­yuṃ.

Hatthārohā anīkaṭṭhā,
rathikā pattikārakā;
Bahuṃ annañca pānañca,
­paṇ­ḍitas­sā­bhihā­ra­yuṃ.

Samāgatā jānapadā,
negamā ca samāgatā;
Bahuṃ annañca pānañca,
­paṇ­ḍitas­sā­bhihā­ra­yuṃ.

Bahujano pasannosi,
disvā paṇḍitamāgate;
Paṇḍitamhi anuppatte,
celukkhepo pavattathāti.

Vidhurajātakaṃ navamaṃ.
