Sutta Nipāta 1.5

Cundasutta

“Pucchāmi muniṃ pahūtapaññaṃ,
(iti cundo kammāraputto):
Buddhaṃ dhammassāmiṃ vītataṇhaṃ;
Dvipaduttamaṃ sārathīnaṃ pavaraṃ,
Kati loke samaṇā tadiṅgha brūhi”.

“Caturo samaṇā na pañcamatthi,
(cundāti bhagavā):
Te te āvikaromi sakkhipuṭṭho;
Maggajino maggadesako ca,
Magge jīvati yo ca maggadūsī”.

“Kaṃ maggajinaṃ vadanti buddhā,
(iti cundo kammāraputto):
Maggakkhāyī kathaṃ atulyo hoti;
Magge jīvati me brūhi puṭṭho,
Atha me āvikarohi maggadūsiṃ”.

“Yo tiṇṇa­kathaṅ­katho visallo,
Nibbānābhirato anānugiddho;
Lokassa sadevakassa netā,
Tādiṃ maggajinaṃ vadanti buddhā.

Paramaṃ paramanti yodha ñatvā,
Akkhāti vibhajate idheva dhammaṃ;
Taṃ kaṅkhachidaṃ muniṃ anejaṃ,
Dutiyaṃ bhikkhunamāhu maggadesiṃ.

Yo dhammapade sudesite,
Magge jīvati saññato satīmā;
Anavajjapadāni sevamāno,
Tatiyaṃ bhikkhunamāhu maggajīviṃ.

Chadanaṃ katvāna subbatānaṃ,
Pakkhandī kuladūsako pagabbho;
Māyāvī asaññato palāpo,
Patirūpena caraṃ sa maggadūsī.

Ete ca paṭivijjhi yo gahaṭṭho,
Sutavā ariyasāvako sapañño;
Sabbe netādisāti ñatvā,
Iti disvā na hāpeti tassa saddhā;
Kathaṃ hi duṭṭhena asampaduṭṭhaṃ,
Suddhaṃ asuddhena samaṃ kareyyā”ti.

Cundasuttaṃ pañcamaṃ.
