Ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā sāvatthiyaṃ viharati jetavane anātha­piṇḍi­kassa ārāme mahatā ­bhik­khu­saṅ­ghena saddhiṃ aḍḍhatelasehi bhikkhusatehi. Tena kho pana samayena bhagavā bhikkhū nib­bā­na­paṭi­saṃ­yuttāya dhammiyā kathāya sandasseti samādapeti samuttejeti sampahaṃseti. Te ca bhikkhū aṭṭhiṃ katvā manasi katvā sabbacetasā samannāharitvā ohitasotā dhammaṃ suṇanti. Atha kho āyasmato vaṅgīsassa etadahosi: “ayaṃ kho bhagavā bhikkhū nib­bā­na­paṭi­saṃ­yuttāya dhammiyā kathāya sandasseti samādapeti samuttejeti sampahaṃseti. Te ca bhikkhū aṭṭhiṃ katvā manasi katvā sabbacetasā samannāharitvā ohitasotā dhammaṃ suṇanti. Yannūnāhaṃ bhagavantaṃ sammukhā sāruppāhi gāthāhi abhitthaveyyan”ti.

Atha kho āyasmā vaṅgīso uṭṭhāyāsanā ekaṃsaṃ uttarāsaṅgaṃ karitvā yena bhagavā tenañjaliṃ paṇāmetvā bhagavantaṃ etadavoca: “paṭibhāti maṃ, bhagavā, paṭibhāti maṃ, sugatā”ti. “Paṭibhātu taṃ, vaṅgīsā”ti bhagavā avoca. Atha kho āyasmā vaṅgīso bhagavantaṃ sammukhā sāruppāhi gāthāhi abhitthavi: 

“Parosahassaṃ bhikkhūnaṃ,
sugataṃ payirupāsati;
Desentaṃ virajaṃ dhammaṃ,
nibbānaṃ akutobhayaṃ.

Suṇanti dhammaṃ vimalaṃ,
sammā­sambud­dha­desitaṃ;
Sobhati vata sambuddho,
­bhik­khu­saṅgha­pu­rak­khato.

Nāganāmosi bhagavā,
isīnaṃ isisattamo;
Mahāmeghova hutvāna,
sāvake abhivassati.

Divāvihārā nikkhamma,
satthu­dassa­na­kam­yatā;
Sāvako te mahāvīra,
pāde vandati vaṅgiso”ti.

“Kiṃ nu te, vaṅgīsa, imā gāthāyo pubbe parivitakkitā, udāhu ṭhānasova taṃ paṭibhantī”ti? “Na kho me, bhante, imā gāthāyo pubbe parivitakkitā, atha kho ṭhānasova maṃ paṭibhantī”ti. “Tena hi taṃ, vaṅgīsa, bhiyyoso mattāya pubbe aparivitakkitā gāthāyo paṭibhantū”ti. “Evaṃ, bhante”ti kho āyasmā vaṅgīso bhagavato paṭissutvā bhiyyoso mattāya bhagavantaṃ pubbe aparivi­takki­tāhi gāthāhi abhitthavi: 

Ummaggapathaṃ mārassa abhibhuyya,
Carasi pabhijja khilāni;
Taṃ passatha bandha­pa­muñ­ca­ka­raṃ,
Asitaṃ bhāgaso pavibhajaṃ.

Oghassa nittha­raṇat­thaṃ,
Anekavihitaṃ maggaṃ akkhāsi;
Tasmiñce amate akkhāte,
Dhammaddasā ṭhitā asaṃhīrā.

Pajjotakaro ativijjha,
Sabbaṭṭhitīnaṃ atik­kama­maddasa;
Ñatvā ca sacchikatvā ca,
Aggaṃ so desayi dasaddhānaṃ.

Evaṃ sudesite dhamme,
Ko pamādo vijānataṃ dhammaṃ;
Tasmā hi tassa bhagavato sāsane,
Appamatto sadā namassama­nu­sikkhe”ti.
