1. Bhikkhuvagga

6. Lakuṇḍa­ka­bhaddi­yasutta

Sāvatthiyaṃ viharati. Atha kho āyasmā lakuṇḍa­ka­bhaddiyo yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami. Addasā kho bhagavā āyasmantaṃ lakuṇḍa­ka­bhaddi­yaṃ dūratova āgacchantaṃ. Disvāna bhikkhū āmantesi: “passatha no tumhe, bhikkhave, etaṃ bhikkhuṃ āgacchantaṃ dubbaṇṇaṃ duddasikaṃ okoṭimakaṃ bhikkhūnaṃ paribhūtarūpan”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 … pe … satthā:

“Haṃsā koñcā mayūrā ca,
hatthayo pasadā migā;
Sabbe sīhassa bhāyanti,
natthi kāyasmiṃ tulyatā.

Evameva manussesu,
daharo cepi paññavā;
So hi tattha mahā hoti,
neva bālo sarīravā”ti.

Chaṭṭhaṃ.
