Atha kho āyasmato godhikassa etadahosi: “yāva chaṭṭhaṃ khvāhaṃ sāmayikāya cetovimuttiyā parihīno. Yannūnāhaṃ satthaṃ āhareyyan”ti. Atha kho māro pāpimā āyasmato godhikassa cetasā ceto­pari­vitak­ka­maññāya yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṃ gāthāhi ajjhabhāsi: 

“Mahāvīra mahāpañña,
iddhiyā yasasā jala;
Sabba­vera­bhayā­tīta,
pāde vandāmi cakkhuma.

Sāvako te mahāvīra,
maraṇaṃ maraṇābhibhū;
Ākaṅkhati cetayati,
taṃ nisedha jutindhara.

Kathañhi bhagavā tuyhaṃ,
Sāvako sāsane rato;
Appattamānaso sekkho,
Kālaṃ kayirā janesutā”ti.

Tena kho pana samayena āyasmatā godhikena satthaṃ āharitaṃ hoti. Atha kho bhagavā “māro ayaṃ pāpimā” iti viditvā māraṃ pāpimantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi: 

“Evañhi dhīrā kubbanti,
nāvakaṅkhanti jīvitaṃ;
Samūlaṃ taṇhamabbuyha,
godhiko parinibbuto”ti.

Atha kho bhagavā bhikkhū āmantesi: “āyāma, bhikkhave, yena isigilipassaṃ kāḷasilā tenu­pasaṅka­mis­sāma yattha godhikena kulaputtena satthaṃ āharitan”ti. “Evaṃ, bhante”ti kho te bhikkhū bhagavato paccassosuṃ.

Atha kho bhagavā sambahulehi bhikkhūhi saddhiṃ yena isigilipassaṃ kāḷasilā tenupasaṅkami. Addasā kho bhagavā āyasmantaṃ godhikaṃ dūratova mañcake ­vivat­tak­khan­dhaṃ semānaṃ. Tena kho pana samayena dhūmāyitattaṃ timirāyitattaṃ gacchateva purimaṃ disaṃ, gacchati pacchimaṃ disaṃ, gacchati uttaraṃ disaṃ, gacchati dakkhiṇaṃ disaṃ, gacchati uddhaṃ, gacchati adho, gacchati anudisaṃ.

Atha kho bhagavā bhikkhū āmantesi: “passatha no tumhe, bhikkhave, etaṃ dhūmāyitattaṃ timirāyitattaṃ gacchateva purimaṃ disaṃ, gacchati pacchimaṃ disaṃ, gacchati uttaraṃ disaṃ, gacchati dakkhiṇaṃ disaṃ, gacchati uddhaṃ, gacchati adho, gacchati anudisan”ti? “Evaṃ, bhante”. “Eso kho, bhikkhave, māro pāpimā godhikassa kulaputtassa viññāṇaṃ samanvesati: ‘kattha godhikassa kulaputtassa viññāṇaṃ patiṭṭhitan’ti? Appatiṭṭhitena ca, bhikkhave, viññāṇena godhiko kulaputto parinibbuto”ti. Atha kho māro pāpimā beluva­paṇḍu­vīṇaṃ ādāya yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi: 

“Uddhaṃ adho ca tiriyaṃ,
disā anudisā svahaṃ;
Anvesaṃ nādhigacchāmi,
godhiko so kuhiṃ gato”ti.

Yo dhīro dhitisampanno,
jhāyī jhānarato sadā;
Ahorattaṃ anuyuñjaṃ,
jīvitaṃ anikāmayaṃ.

Jetvāna maccuno senaṃ,
anāgantvā punabbhavaṃ;
Samūlaṃ taṇhamabbuyha,
godhiko parinibbuto”ti.

Tassa sokaparetassa,
vīṇā kacchā abhassatha;
Tato so dummano yakkho,
tat­the­vantara­dhāyathāti.
