20. Jana­pada­kal­yāṇī­sutta

Evaṃ me sutaṃ—​   ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā sumbhesu viharati sedakaṃ nāma sumbhānaṃ nigamo. Tatra kho bhagavā bhikkhū āmantesi: “bhikkhavo”ti. “Bhadante”ti te bhikkhū bhagavato paccassosuṃ. Bhagavā etadavoca:

“Seyyathāpi, bhikkhave, ‘jana­pada­kal­yāṇī, jana­pada­kal­yāṇī’ti kho, bhikkhave, mahājanakāyo sannipateyya. ‘Sā kho panassa jana­pada­kal­yāṇī paramapāsāvinī nacce, paramapāsāvinī gīte. Jana­pada­kal­yāṇī naccati gāyatī’ti kho, bhikkhave, bhiyyoso mattāya mahājanakāyo sannipateyya. Atha puriso āgaccheyya jīvitukāmo amaritukāmo sukhakāmo duk­khap­paṭi­kūlo. Tamenaṃ evaṃ vadeyya: ‘ayaṃ te, ambho purisa, samatittiko telapatto antarena ca mahāsamajjaṃ antarena ca jana­pada­kal­yāṇiyā pariharitabbo. Puriso ca te ukkhittāsiko piṭṭhito piṭṭhito anubandhissati. Yattheva naṃ thokampi chaḍḍessati tattheva te siro pātessatī’ti. Taṃ kiṃ maññatha, bhikkhave, api nu so puriso amuṃ telapattaṃ amanasikaritvā bahiddhā pamādaṃ āhareyyā”ti? “No hetaṃ, bhante”.

“Upamā kho myāyaṃ, bhikkhave, katā atthassa viññāpanāya. Ayaṃ cevettha attho— samatittiko telapattoti kho, bhikkhave, kāyagatāya etaṃ satiyā adhivacanaṃ. Tasmātiha, bhikkhave, evaṃ sikkhitabbaṃ: ‘kāyagatā sati no bhāvitā bhavissati bahulīkatā yānīkatā vatthukatā anuṭṭhitā paricitā susamāraddhā’ti. Evañhi kho, bhikkhave, sikkhitabban”ti.

Dasamaṃ.

Nālandavaggo dutiyo.

Mahāpuriso nālandaṃ,
Cundo celañca bāhiyo;
Uttiyo ariyo brahmā,
Sedakaṃ janapadena cāti.
