Saṃyutta Nikāya 21

1. Bhikkhuvagga

11. Mahā­kap­pina­sutta

Sāvatthiyaṃ viharati. Atha kho āyasmā mahākappino yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami. Addasā kho bhagavā āyasmantaṃ mahākappinaṃ dūratova āgacchantaṃ. Disvāna bhikkhū āmantesi: “passatha no tumhe, bhikkhave, etaṃ bhikkhuṃ āgacchantaṃ odātakaṃ tanukaṃ tuṅganāsikan”ti? “Evaṃ, bhante”. “Eso kho, bhikkhave, bhikkhu mahiddhiko mahānubhāvo. Na ca sā samāpatti sulabharūpā yā tena bhikkhunā asamā­panna­pubbā. Yassa catthāya kulaputtā sammadeva agārasmā anagāriyaṃ pabbajanti tadanuttaraṃ brahma­cari­ya­pari­yosānaṃ diṭṭheva dhamme sayaṃ abhiññā sacchikatvā upasampajja viharatī”ti.

Idamavoca bhagavā. Idaṃ vatvāna sugato athāparaṃ etadavoca satthā: 

“Khattiyo seṭṭho janetasmiṃ,
ye gotta­paṭi­sārino;
Vij­jācara­ṇa­sam­panno,
so seṭṭho devamānuse.

Divā tapati ādicco,
rattimābhāti candimā;
Sannaddho khattiyo tapati,
jhāyī tapati brāhmaṇo;
Atha sabba­maho­rattiṃ,
buddho tapati tejasā”ti.

Ekādasamaṃ.
