Sāvatthiyaṃ. “Bhūtapubbaṃ, bhikkhave, sambahulā isayo sīlavanto kalyāṇadhammā samuddatīre paṇṇakuṭīsu sammanti. Tena kho pana samayena devāsu­rasaṅgāmo samupabyūḷho ahosi. Atha kho, bhikkhave, tesaṃ isīnaṃ sīlavantānaṃ kal­yāṇa­dhammā­naṃ etadahosi: ‘dhammikā kho devā, adhammikā asurā. Siyāpi no asurato bhayaṃ. Yannūna mayaṃ sambaraṃ asurindaṃ upasaṅkamitvā abhaya­dak­khi­ṇaṃ yāceyyāmā’ti. Atha kho, bhikkhave, te isayo sīlavanto kalyāṇadhammā— seyyathāpi nāma balavā puriso samiñjitaṃ vā bāhaṃ pasāreyya, pasāritaṃ vā bāhaṃ samiñjeyya; evameva—samuddatīre paṇṇakuṭīsu antarahitā sambarassa asurindassa sammukhe pāturahesuṃ. Atha kho, bhikkhave, te isayo sīlavanto kalyāṇadhammā sambaraṃ asurindaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsiṃsu:

‘Isayo sambaraṃ pattā,
yācanti abhaya­dak­khi­ṇaṃ;
Kāmaṅkaro hi te dātuṃ,
bhayassa abhayassa vā’ti.

‘Isīnaṃ abhayaṃ natthi,
duṭṭhānaṃ sakkasevinaṃ;
Abhayaṃ yācamānānaṃ,
bhayameva dadāmi vo’ti.

‘Abhayaṃ yācamānānaṃ,
bhayameva dadāsi no;
Paṭiggaṇhāma te etaṃ,
akkhayaṃ hotu te bhayaṃ.

Yādisaṃ vapate bījaṃ,
tādisaṃ harate phalaṃ;
Kalyāṇakārī kalyāṇaṃ,
pāpakārī ca pāpakaṃ;
Pavuttaṃ tāta te bījaṃ,
phalaṃ pacca­nubhos­sasī’ti.

Atha kho, bhikkhave, te isayo sīlavanto kalyāṇadhammā sambaraṃ asurindaṃ abhisapitvā—seyyathāpi nāma balavā puriso samiñjitaṃ vā bāhaṃ pasāreyya, pasāritaṃ vā bāhaṃ samiñjeyya; evameva—sambarassa asurindassa sammukhe antarahitā samuddatīre paṇṇakuṭīsu pāturahesuṃ. Atha kho, bhikkhave, sambaro asurindo tehi isīhi sīlavantehi kal­yāṇa­dham­mehi abhisapito rattiyā sudaṃ tikkhattuṃ ubbijjī”ti.

Paṭhamo vaggo.

Suvīraṃ susīmañceva,
dhajaggaṃ vepacittino;
Subhāsitaṃ jayañceva,
kulāvakaṃ nadubbhiyaṃ;
Verocana asurindo,
isayo araññakañceva;
Isayo ca samuddakāti.
