1. Dha­nañjānī­sutta

Evaṃ me sutaṃ—​   ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā rājagahe viharati veḷuvane kalanda­ka­nivāpe. Tena kho pana samayena aññatarassa bhārad­vāja­gottassa brāhmaṇassa dhanañjānī nāma brāhmaṇī abhippasannā hoti buddhe ca dhamme ca saṅghe ca. Atha kho dhanañjānī brāhmaṇī bhārad­vāja­gottassa brāhmaṇassa bhattaṃ upasaṃharantī upakkhalitvā tikkhattuṃ udānaṃ udānesi: 

“Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā­sambud­dhassa.

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā­sambud­dhassa.

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā­sambud­dhassā”ti.

Evaṃ vutte, bhārad­vāja­gotto brāhmaṇo dhanañjāniṃ brāhmaṇiṃ etadavoca: “evamevaṃ panāyaṃ vasalī yasmiṃ vā tasmiṃ vā tassa muṇḍakassa samaṇassa vaṇṇaṃ bhāsati. Idāni tyāhaṃ, vasali, tassa satthuno vādaṃ āropessāmī”ti. “Na khvāhaṃ taṃ, brāhmaṇa, passāmi sadevake loke samārake sabrahmake ­sassama­ṇab­rāhma­ṇiyā pajāya sade­va­manus­sāya, yo tassa bhagavato vādaṃ āropeyya arahato sammā­sambud­dhassa. Api ca tvaṃ, brāhmaṇa, gaccha, gantvā vijānissasī”ti.

Atha kho bhārad­vāja­gotto brāhmaṇo kupito anattamano yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami; upasaṅkamitvā bhagavatā saddhiṃ sammodi. Sammodanīyaṃ kathaṃ sāraṇīyaṃ vītisāretvā ekamantaṃ nisīdi. Ekamantaṃ nisinno kho bhārad­vāja­gotto brāhmaṇo bhagavantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi: 

“Kiṃsu chetvā sukhaṃ seti,
kiṃsu chetvā na socati;
Kissassu ekadhammassa,
vadhaṃ rocesi gotamā”ti.

“Kodhaṃ chetvā sukhaṃ seti,
kodhaṃ chetvā na socati;
Kodhassa visamūlassa,
madhuraggassa brāhmaṇa;
Vadhaṃ ariyā pasaṃsanti,
tañhi chetvā na socatī”ti.

Evaṃ vutte, bhārad­vāja­gotto brāhmaṇo bhagavantaṃ etadavoca: “abhikkantaṃ, bho gotama, abhikkantaṃ, bho gotama. Seyyathāpi, bho gotama, nikkujjitaṃ vā ukkujjeyya, paṭicchannaṃ vā vivareyya, mūḷhassa vā maggaṃ ācikkheyya, andhakāre vā telapajjotaṃ dhāreyya: ‘cakkhumanto rūpāni dakkhantī’ti; evamevaṃ bhotā gotamena aneka­pariyā­yena dhammo pakāsito. Esāhaṃ, bhante, bhagavantaṃ gotamaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi dhammañca ­bhik­khu­saṅghañca. Labheyyāhaṃ bhoto gotamassa santike pabbajjaṃ, labheyyaṃ upasampadan”ti.

Alattha kho bhārad­vāja­gotto brāhmaṇo bhagavato santike pabbajjaṃ, alattha upasampadaṃ. Acirū­pasam­panno kho panāyasmā bhāradvājo eko vūpakaṭṭho appamatto ātāpī pahitatto viharanto nacirasseva—yassatthāya kulaputtā sammadeva agārasmā anagāriyaṃ pabbajanti tadanuttaraṃ—brahma­cari­ya­pari­yosānaṃ diṭṭheva dhamme sayaṃ abhiññā sacchikatvā upasampajja vihāsi. “Khīṇā jāti, vusitaṃ brahmacariyaṃ, kataṃ karaṇīyaṃ, nāparaṃ itthattāyā”ti abbhaññāsi. Aññataro ca panāyasmā bhāradvājo arahataṃ ahosīti.
