22. Kho­ma­dussa­sutta

Evaṃ me sutaṃ—​   ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā sakkesu viharati khomadussaṃ nāmaṃ sakyānaṃ nigamo. Atha kho bhagavā pubbaṇ­ha­samayaṃ nivāsetvā patta­cīvara­mādāya khomadussaṃ nigamaṃ piṇḍāya pāvisi. Tena kho pana samayena khomadussakā brāhma­ṇa­gaha­patikā sabhāyaṃ sannipatitā honti kenacideva karaṇīyena, devo ca ekamekaṃ phusāyati. Atha kho bhagavā yena sā sabhā tenupasaṅkami. Addasaṃsu khomadussakā brāhma­ṇa­gaha­patikā bhagavantaṃ dūratova āgacchantaṃ. Disvāna etadavocuṃ: “ke ca muṇḍakā samaṇakā, ke ca sabhādhammaṃ jānissantī”ti? Atha kho bhagavā khomadussake brāhma­ṇa­gaha­patike gāthāya ajjhabhāsi: 

“Nesā sabhā yattha na santi santo,
Santo na te ye na vadanti dhammaṃ;
Rāgañca dosañca pahāya mohaṃ,
Dhammaṃ vadantā ca bhavanti santo”ti.

Evaṃ vutte, khomadussakā brāhma­ṇa­gaha­patikā bhagavantaṃ etadavocuṃ: “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. Ete mayaṃ bhavantaṃ gotamaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāma dhammañca ­bhik­khu­saṅghañca. Upāsake no bhavaṃ gotamo dhāretu ajjatagge pāṇupete saraṇaṃ gate”ti.

Upāsakavaggo dutiyo.

Kasi udayo devahito,
Aññata­ra­ma­hāsā­laṃ;
Mānatthaddhaṃ paccanīkaṃ,
Navakammi kaṭṭhahāraṃ;
Mātuposakaṃ bhikkhako,
Saṅgāravo ca khomadussena dvādasāti.

Brāhma­ṇa­saṃ­yuttaṃ samattaṃ.
