Sāvatthi­nidānaṃ. Atha kho māgho devaputto abhikkantāya rattiyā abhikkan­ta­vaṇṇo kevalakappaṃ jetavanaṃ obhāsetvā yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṃ abhivādetvā ekamantaṃ aṭṭhāsi. Ekamantaṃ ṭhito kho māgho devaputto 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 vatrabhū;
Vadhaṃ ariyā pasaṃsanti,
tañhi chetvā na socatī”ti.
