4. Maṇi­bhadda­sutta

Ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā magadhesu viharati maṇimālike cetiye maṇibhaddassa yakkhassa bhavane. Atha kho maṇibhaddo yakkho yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavato santike imaṃ gāthaṃ abhāsi: 

“Satīmato sadā bhaddaṃ,
satimā sukhamedhati;
Satīmato suve seyyo,
verā ca parimuccatī”ti.

“Satīmato sadā bhaddaṃ,
satimā sukhamedhati;
Satīmato suve seyyo,
verā na parimuccati.

Yassa sabba­ma­horat­taṃ,
ahiṃsāya rato mano;
Mettaṃso sabbabhūtesu,
veraṃ tassa na kenacī”ti.
