14. Nandanasutta

Ekamantaṃ ṭhito kho nandano devaputto bhagavantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi: 

“Pucchāmi taṃ gotama bhūripañña,
Anāvaṭaṃ bhagavato ñāṇadassanaṃ;
Kathaṃvidhaṃ sīlavantaṃ vadanti,
Kathaṃvidhaṃ paññavantaṃ vadanti;
Kathaṃvidho dukkhamaticca iriyati,
Kathaṃvidhaṃ devatā pūjayantī”ti.

“Yo sīlavā paññavā bhāvitatto,
Samāhito jhānarato satīmā;
Sabbassa sokā vigatā pahīnā,
Khīṇāsavo antima­deha­dhārī.

Tathāvidhaṃ sīlavantaṃ vadanti,
Tathāvidhaṃ paññavantaṃ vadanti;
Tathāvidho dukkhamaticca iriyati,
Tathāvidhaṃ devatā pūjayantī”ti.
