21. Chetvāsutta

Sāvatthiyaṃ jetavane. Atha kho sakko devānamindo yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṃ abhivādetvā ekamantaṃ aṭṭhāsi. Ekamantaṃ ṭhito kho sakko devānamindo bhagavantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi:

“Kiṃsu chetvā sukhaṃ seti,
kiṃsu chetvā na socati;
Kissassu ekadhammassa,
vadhaṃ rocesi gotamā”ti.

“Kodhaṃ chetvā sukhaṃ seti,
kodhaṃ chetvā na socati;
Kodhassa visamūlassa,
madhuraggassa vāsava;
Vadhaṃ ariyā pasaṃsanti,
tañhi chetvā na socatī”ti.
