Rājagahe viharati veḷuvane kalanda­ka­nivāpe. Tena kho pana samayena devadattassa ajāta­sattu­kumāro pañcahi rathasatehi sāyaṃ pātaṃ upaṭṭhānaṃ gacchati, pañca ca thāli­pāka­satāni bhattābhihāro abhiharīyati. Atha kho sambahulā bhikkhū yena bhagavā tenu­pasaṅka­miṃsu; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṃ abhivādetvā ekamantaṃ nisīdiṃsu. Ekamantaṃ nisinnā kho te bhikkhū bhagavantaṃ etadavocuṃ: “devadattassa, bhante, ajāta­sattu­kumāro pañcahi rathasatehi sāyaṃ pātaṃ upaṭṭhānaṃ gacchati, pañca ca thāli­pāka­satāni bhattābhihāro abhiharīyatī”ti. “Mā, bhikkhave, devadattassa lābhasakkā­ra­silokaṃ pihayittha. Yāvakīvañca, bhikkhave, devadattassa ajāta­sattu­kumāro pañcahi rathasatehi sāyaṃ pātaṃ upaṭṭhānaṃ gamissati, pañca ca thāli­pāka­satāni bhattābhihāro āharīyissati, hāniyeva, bhikkhave, devadattassa pāṭikaṅkhā kusalesu dhammesu, no vuddhi.

Seyyathāpi, bhikkhave, caṇḍassa kukkurassa nāsāya pittaṃ bhindeyyuṃ, evañhi so, bhikkhave, kukkuro bhiyyoso mattāya caṇḍataro assa; evameva, bhikkhave, yāvakīvañca devadattassa ajāta­sattu­kumāro pañcahi rathasatehi sāyaṃ pātaṃ upaṭṭhānaṃ gamissati, pañca ca thāli­pāka­satāni bhattābhihāro āharīyissati, hāniyeva, bhikkhave, devadattassa pāṭikaṅkhā kusalesu dhammesu, no vuddhi. Evaṃ dāruṇo kho, bhikkhave, lābhasakkā­ra­siloko … pe … evañhi vo, bhikkhave, sikkhitabban”ti.

Chaṭṭhaṃ.
