Evaṃ me sutaṃ—​   ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā uruvelāyaṃ viharati najjā nerañjarāya tīre ajapā­la­nigrodha­mūle paṭha­mā­bhisam­buddho. Tena kho pana samayena bhagavā rat­tandha­kā­ra­timisā­yaṃ abbhokāse nisinno hoti, devo ca ekamekaṃ phusāyati. Atha kho māro pāpimā, bhagavato bhayaṃ chambhitattaṃ lomahaṃsaṃ uppādetukāmo, yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavato avidūre uccāvacā vaṇṇanibhā upadaṃseti, subhā ceva asubhā ca. Atha kho bhagavā “māro ayaṃ pāpimā” iti viditvā māraṃ pāpimantaṃ gāthāhi ajjhabhāsi: 

“Saṃsaraṃ dīghamaddhānaṃ,
vaṇṇaṃ katvā subhāsubhaṃ;
Alaṃ te tena pāpima,
nihato tvamasi antaka.

Ye ca kāyena vācāya,
manasā ca susaṃvutā;
Na te māravasānugā,
na te mārassa baddhagū”ti.

Atha kho māro … pe … tat­the­vantara­dhāyīti.
