9. Paṭha­ma­ā­yusutta

Evaṃ me sutaṃ—​   ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā rājagahe viharati veḷuvane kalanda­ka­nivāpe. Tatra kho bhagavā bhikkhū āmantesi: “bhikkhavo”ti. “Bhadante”ti te bhikkhū bhagavato paccassosuṃ. Bhagavā etadavoca: 

“Appamidaṃ, bhikkhave, manussānaṃ āyu. Gamanīyo samparāyo, kattabbaṃ kusalaṃ, caritabbaṃ brahmacariyaṃ. Natthi jātassa amaraṇaṃ. Yo, bhikkhave, ciraṃ jīvati, so vassasataṃ appaṃ vā bhiyyo”ti.

Atha kho māro pāpimā yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi: 

“Dīghamāyu manussānaṃ,
na naṃ hīḷe suporiso;
Careyya khīramattova,
natthi maccussa āgamo”ti.

“Appamāyu manussānaṃ,
hīḷeyya naṃ suporiso;
Carey­yāditta­sīsova,
natthi maccussa nāgamo”ti.

Atha kho māro … pe … tat­the­vantara­dhāyīti.
