Addasā kho sun­darika­bhārad­vājo brāhmaṇo bhagavantaṃ aññatarasmiṃ rukkhamūle sasīsaṃ pārutaṃ nisinnaṃ.

“Mā jātiṃ puccha caraṇañca puccha,
Kaṭṭhā have jāyati jātavedo;
Nīcākulīnopi muni dhitimā,
Ājānīyo hoti hirīnisedho.

Saccena danto damasā upeto,
Vedantagū vusitab­rahma­cariyo;
Yaññopanīto tamupavhayetha,
Kālena so juhati dakkhiṇeyye”ti.

“Addhā suyiṭṭhaṃ suhutaṃ mama yidaṃ,
Yaṃ tādisaṃ vedagu­maddasāmi;
Tumhādisānañhi adassanena,
Añño jano bhuñjati habyasesan”ti.

“Bhuñjatu bhavaṃ gotamo. Brāhmaṇo bhavan”ti.

“Gāthābhigītaṃ me abhojaneyyaṃ,
Sampassataṃ brāhmaṇa nesa dhammo;
Gāthābhigītaṃ panudanti buddhā,
Dhamme sati brāhmaṇa vuttiresā.

Aññena ca kevalinaṃ mahesiṃ,
Khīṇāsavaṃ kukkuc­ca­vū­pasan­taṃ;
Annena pānena upaṭṭhahassu,
Khettañhi taṃ puññapekkhassa hotī”ti.

“Atha kassa cāhaṃ, bho gotama, imaṃ habyasesaṃ dammī”ti? “Na khvāhaṃ, brāhmaṇa, passāmi sadevake loke samārake sabrahmake ­sassama­ṇab­rāhma­ṇiyā pajāya sade­va­manus­sāya yasseso habyaseso bhutto sammā pariṇāmaṃ gaccheyya aññatra, brāhmaṇa, tathāgatassa vā tathā­gata­sāvakassa vā.

“Mā brāhmaṇa dāru samādahāno,
Suddhiṃ amaññi bahiddhā hi etaṃ;
Na hi tena suddhiṃ kusalā vadanti,
Yo bāhirena pari­suddhi­micche.

Hitvā ahaṃ brāhmaṇa dārudāhaṃ,
Ajjhat­ta­me­vujjala­yāmi jotiṃ;
Niccagginī nic­casamā­hitatto,
Arahaṃ ahaṃ brahmacariyaṃ carāmi.

Māno hi te brāhmaṇa khāribhāro,
Kodho dhumo bhasmani mosavajjaṃ;
Jivhā sujā hadayaṃ jotiṭhānaṃ,
Attā sudanto purisassa joti.

Dhammo rahado brāhmaṇa sīlatittho,
Anāvilo sabbhi sataṃ pasattho;
Yattha have vedaguno sinātā,
Anallagattāva taranti pāraṃ.

Saccaṃ dhammo saṃyamo brahmacariyaṃ,
Majjhe sitā brāhmaṇa brahmapatti;
Sa tujjubhūtesu namo karohi,
Tamahaṃ naraṃ dhammasārīti brūmī”ti.
