Sutta Nipāta 3.1

Pabbajjāsutta

“Pabbajjaṃ kittayissāmi,
yathā pabbaji cakkhumā;
Yathā vīmaṃsamāno so,
pabbajjaṃ samarocayi.

Sambādhoyaṃ gharāvāso,
rajassāyatanaṃ iti;
Abbhokāsova pabbajjā,
iti disvāna pabbaji.

Pabbajitvāna kāyena,
pāpakammaṃ vivajjayi;
Vacīduccaritaṃ hitvā,
ājīvaṃ parisodhayi.

Agamā rājagahaṃ buddho,
magadhānaṃ giribbajaṃ;
Piṇḍāya abhihāresi,
ākiṇṇa­vara­lak­khaṇo”.

Tamaddasā bimbisāro,
pāsādasmiṃ patiṭṭhito;
Disvā ­lak­kha­ṇa­sam­pannaṃ,
imamatthaṃ abhāsatha.

“Imaṃ bhonto nisāmetha,
abhirūpo brahā suci;
Caraṇena ca sampanno,
yugamattañca pekkhati.

Okkhittacakkhu satimā,
nāyaṃ nīcakulāmiva;
Rāja­dūtā­bhi­dhāvantu,
kuhiṃ bhikkhu gamissati”.

Te pesitā rājadūtā,
piṭṭhito anubandhisuṃ;
Kuhiṃ gamissati bhikkhu,
kattha vāso bhavissati.

Sapadānaṃ caramāno,
guttadvāro susaṃvuto;
Khippaṃ pattaṃ apūresi,
sampajāno paṭissato.

Piṇḍacāraṃ caritvāna,
Nikkhamma nagarā muni;
Paṇḍavaṃ abhihāresi,
Ettha vāso bhavissati.

Disvāna vāsūpagataṃ,
Tayo dūtā upāvisuṃ;
Tesu ekova āgantvā,
Rājino paṭivedayi.

“Esa bhikkhu mahārāja,
Paṇḍavassa puratthato;
Nisinno byagghusabhova,
Sīhova girigabbhare”.

Sutvāna dūtavacanaṃ,
Bhaddayānena khattiyo;
Taramānarūpo niyyāsi,
Yena paṇḍavapabbato.

Sa yānabhūmiṃ yāyitvā,
Yānā oruyha khattiyo;
Pattiko upasaṅkamma,
Āsajja naṃ upāvisi.

Nisajja rājā sammodi,
Kathaṃ sāraṇīyaṃ tato;
Kathaṃ so vītisāretvā,
Imamatthaṃ abhāsatha.

“Yuvā ca daharo cāsi,
Paṭha­mup­pat­tiko susu;
Vaṇṇārohena sampanno,
Jātimā viya khattiyo.

Sobhayanto anīkaggaṃ,
Nāga­saṅgha­pu­rak­khato;
Dadāmi bhoge bhuñjassu,
Jātiṃ akkhāhi pucchito”.

“Ujuṃ janapado rāja,
Himavantassa passato;
Dhanaviriyena sampanno,
Kosalesu niketino.

Ādiccā nāma gottena,
Sākiyā nāma jātiyā;
Tamhā kulā pabbajitomhi,
Na kāme abhipatthayaṃ.

Kāmesvādīnavaṃ disvā,
Nekkhammaṃ daṭṭhu khemato;
Padhānāya gamissāmi,
Ettha me rañjatī mano”ti.

Pabbajjāsuttaṃ paṭhamaṃ.
