1. Paṭhamavagga

10. Sūriyasutta

Sāvatthi­nidānaṃ. Tena kho pana samayena sūriyo devaputto rāhunā asurindena gahito hoti. Atha kho sūriyo devaputto bhagavantaṃ anussaramāno tāyaṃ velāyaṃ imaṃ gāthaṃ abhāsi:

“Namo te buddha vīratthu,
vippamuttosi sabbadhi;
­Sambā­dha­paṭi­pan­nosmi,
tassa me saraṇaṃ bhavā”ti.

Atha kho bhagavā sūriyaṃ devaputtaṃ ārabbha rāhuṃ asurindaṃ gāthāhi ajjhabhāsi: 

“Tathāgataṃ arahantaṃ,
sūriyo saraṇaṃ gato;
Rāhu sūriyaṃ pamuñcassu,
buddhā lokānukampakā.

Yo andhakāre tamasi pabhaṅkaro,
Verocano maṇḍalī uggatejo;
Mā rāhu gilī caraman­ta­likkhe,
Pajaṃ mamaṃ rāhu pamuñca sūriyan”ti.

Atha kho rāhu asurindo sūriyaṃ devaputtaṃ muñcitvā taramānarūpo yena vepacitti asurindo tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā saṃviggo lomahaṭṭhajāto ekamantaṃ aṭṭhāsi. Ekamantaṃ ṭhitaṃ kho rāhuṃ asurindaṃ vepacitti asurindo gāthāya ajjhabhāsi: 

“Kiṃ nu santaramānova,
rāhu sūriyaṃ pamuñcasi;
Saṃviggarūpo āgamma,
kiṃ nu bhītova tiṭṭhasī”ti.

“Sattadhā me phale muddhā,
jīvanto na sukhaṃ labhe;
Buddha­gāthā­bhi­gītomhi,
no ce muñceyya sūriyan”ti.

Paṭhamo vaggo.

Dve kassapā ca māgho ca,
Māgadho dāmali kāmado;
Pañcālacaṇḍo tāyano,
Can­dima­sū­riyena te dasāti.
