Tena kho pana samayena āyasmā vaṅgīso navako hoti acirapabbajito ohiyyako vihārapālo. Atha kho sambahulā itthiyo samalaṅkaritvā yena aggāḷavako ārāmo tenu­pasaṅka­miṃsu vihā­ra­pekkhi­kāyo. Atha kho āyasmato vaṅgīsassa tā itthiyo disvā anabhirati uppajjati, rāgo cittaṃ anuddhaṃseti. Atha kho āyasmato vaṅgīsassa etadahosi: “alābhā vata me, na vata me lābhā; dulladdhaṃ vata me, na vata me suladdhaṃ; yassa me anabhirati uppannā, rāgo cittaṃ anuddhaṃseti, taṃ kutettha labbhā, yaṃ me paro anabhiratiṃ vinodetvā abhiratiṃ uppādeyya.

“Nikkhantaṃ vata maṃ santaṃ,
agāras­mā­nagā­riyaṃ;
Vitakkā upadhāvanti,
pagabbhā kaṇhato ime.

Uggaputtā mahissāsā,
sikkhitā daḷhadhammino;
Samantā parikireyyuṃ,
sahassaṃ apalāyinaṃ.

Sacepi etato bhiyyo,
āgamissanti itthiyo;
Neva maṃ byādhayissanti,
dhamme samhi patiṭṭhitaṃ.

Sakkhī hi me sutaṃ etaṃ,
buddhas­sādicca­bandhuno;
Nibbānagamanaṃ maggaṃ,
tattha me nirato mano.

Evañce maṃ viharantaṃ,
pāpima upagacchasi;
Tathā maccu karissāmi,
na me maggampi dakkhasī”ti.
