Pucchāmi ­satthā­ra­mano­mapaññaṃ,
Diṭṭheva dhamme yo vicikicchānaṃ chettā;
Aggāḷave kālamakāsi bhikkhu,
Ñāto yasassī abhinibbutatto.

Nigrodhakappo iti tassa nāmaṃ,
Tayā kataṃ bhagavā brāhmaṇassa;
So taṃ namassaṃ acari mutyapekkho,
Āraddhaviriyo daḷ­ha­dham­ma­dassī.

Taṃ sāvakaṃ sakya mayampi sabbe,
Aññātumicchāma samantacakkhu;
Samavaṭṭhitā no savanāya sotā,
Tuvaṃ no satthā tvamanuttarosi.

Chindeva no vicikicchaṃ brūhi metaṃ,
Parinibbutaṃ vedaya bhūripañña;
Majjheva no bhāsa samantacakkhu,
Sakkova devāna sahassanetto.

Ye keci ganthā idha mohamaggā,
Aññāṇapakkhā vici­kiccha­ṭhānā;
Tathāgataṃ patvā na te bhavanti,
Cakkhuñhi etaṃ paramaṃ narānaṃ.

No ce hi jātu puriso kilese,
Vāto yathā abbhaghanaṃ vihāne;
Tamovassa nivuto sabbaloko,
Na jotimantopi narā tapeyyuṃ.

Dhīrā ca pajjotakarā bhavanti,
Taṃ taṃ ahaṃ vīra tatheva maññe;
Vipassinaṃ jāna­mupāga­mumhā,
Parisāsu no āvikarohi kappaṃ.

Khippaṃ giraṃ eraya vaggu vagguṃ,
Haṃsova paggayha saṇikaṃ nikūja;
Bindussarena suvikappitena,
Sabbeva te ujjugatā suṇoma.

Pahīna­jāti­maraṇaṃ asesaṃ,
Niggayha dhonaṃ vadessāmi dhammaṃ;
Na kāmakāro hi puthujjanānaṃ,
Saṅkheyyakāro ca tathāgatānaṃ.

Sam­panna­vey­yāka­ra­ṇaṃ tavedaṃ,
­Samuj­ju­paññassa samuggahītaṃ;
Ayamañjalī pacchimo suppaṇāmito,
Mā mohayī jāna­manoma­pañña.

Parovaraṃ ariyadhammaṃ viditvā,
Mā mohayī jānamanomavīra;
Vāriṃ yathā ghammani ghammatatto,
Vācā­bhi­kaṅ­khāmi sutaṃ pavassa.

Yadatthikaṃ brahmacariyaṃ acarī,
Kappāyano kaccissa taṃ amoghaṃ;
Nibbāyi so ādu saupādiseso,
Yathā vimutto ahu taṃ suṇoma”.

Acchecchi taṇhaṃ idha nāmarūpe,
(iti bhagavā):
Kaṇhassa sotaṃ dīgha­rat­tā­nusa­yi­taṃ;
Atāri jātiṃ maraṇaṃ asesaṃ”,
Iccabravī bhagavā pañcaseṭṭho.

“Esa sutvā pasīdāmi,
Vaco te isisattama;
Amoghaṃ kira me puṭṭhaṃ,
Na maṃ vañcesi brāhmaṇo.

Yathāvādī tathākārī,
Ahu buddhassa sāvako;
Acchidā maccuno jālaṃ,
Tataṃ māyāvino daḷhaṃ.

Addasā bhagavā ādiṃ,
Upādānassa kappiyo;
Accagā vata kappāyano,
Maccudheyyaṃ suduttaran”ti.

Nigrodha­kappa­suttaṃ dvādasamaṃ.
