1. Indakasutta

Evaṃ me sutaṃ—​   ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā rājagahe viharati indakūṭe pabbate, indakassa yakkhassa bhavane. Atha kho indako yakkho yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi: 

“Rūpaṃ na jīvanti vadanti buddhā,
Kathaṃ nvayaṃ vindatimaṃ sarīraṃ;
Kutassa aṭṭhī­ya­ka­piṇḍa­meti,
Kathaṃ nvayaṃ sajjati gabbharasmin”ti.

“Paṭhamaṃ kalalaṃ hoti,
kalalā hoti abbudaṃ;
Abbudā jāyate pesi,
pesi nibbattatī ghano;
Ghanā pasākhā jāyanti,
kesā lomā nakhāpi ca.

Yañcassa bhuñjatī mātā,
annaṃ pānañca bhojanaṃ;
Tena so tattha yāpeti,
mātukucchigato naro”ti.
