Sutta Nipāta 3.2

Padhānasutta

“Taṃ maṃ padhā­na­pahitat­taṃ,
nadiṃ nerañjaraṃ pati;
Viparakkamma jhāyantaṃ,
yogakkhemassa pattiyā.

Namucī karuṇaṃ vācaṃ,
bhāsamāno upāgami;
Kiso tvamasi dubbaṇṇo,
santike maraṇaṃ tava.

Sahassabhāgo maraṇassa,
ekaṃso tava jīvitaṃ;
Jīva bho jīvitaṃ seyyo,
jīvaṃ puññāni kāhasi.

Carato ca te brahmacariyaṃ,
Aggihuttañca jūhato;
Pahūtaṃ cīyate puññaṃ,
Kiṃ padhānena kāhasi.

Duggo maggo padhānāya,
dukkaro dura­bhisam­bhavo’”;
Imā gāthā bhaṇaṃ māro,
aṭṭhā buddhassa santike.

Taṃ tathāvādinaṃ māraṃ,
bhagavā etadabravi;
Pamattabandhu pāpima,
yenatthena idhāgato.

Aṇumattopi puññena,
Attho mayhaṃ na vijjati;
Yesañca attho puññena,
Te māro vattumarahati.

Atthi saddhā tathā viriyaṃ,
paññā ca mama vijjati;
Evaṃ maṃ pahitattampi,
kiṃ jīvama­nu­pucchasi.

Nadīnamapi sotāni,
ayaṃ vāto visosaye;
Kiñca me pahitattassa,
lohitaṃ nupasussaye.

Lohite sussamānamhi,
Pittaṃ semhañca sussati;
Maṃsesu khīyamānesu,
Bhiyyo cittaṃ pasīdati;
Bhiyyo sati ca paññā ca,
Samādhi mama tiṭṭhati.

Tassa mevaṃ viharato,
Pattas­suttama­vedanaṃ;
Kāmesu nāpekkhate cittaṃ,
Passa sattassa suddhataṃ.

Kāmā te paṭhamā senā,
Dutiyā arati vuccati;
Tatiyā khuppipāsā te,
Catutthī taṇhā pavuccati.

Pañcamaṃ thinamiddhaṃ te,
Chaṭṭhā bhīrū pavuccati;
Sattamī vicikicchā te,
Makkho thambho te aṭṭhamo.

Lābho siloko sakkāro,
Micchāladdho ca yo yaso;
Yo cattānaṃ samukkaṃse,
Pare ca avajānati.

Esā namuci te senā,
Kaṇhas­sā­bhip­pahārinī;
Na naṃ asūro jināti,
Jetvā ca labhate sukhaṃ.

Esa muñjaṃ parihare,
Dhiratthu mama jīvitaṃ;
Saṅgāme me mataṃ seyyo,
Yañce jīve parājito.

Pagāḷhettha na dissanti,
Eke samaṇabrāhmaṇā;
Tañca maggaṃ na jānanti,
Yena gacchanti subbatā.

Samantā dhajiniṃ disvā,
Yuttaṃ māraṃ savāhanaṃ;
Yuddhāya paccuggacchāmi,
Mā maṃ ṭhānā acāvayi.

Yaṃ te taṃ nappasahati,
Senaṃ loko sadevako;
Taṃ te paññāya bhecchāmi,
Āmaṃ pattaṃva asmanā.

Vasīkaritvā saṅkappaṃ,
Satiñca sūpatiṭṭhitaṃ;
Raṭṭhā raṭṭhaṃ vicarissaṃ,
Sāvake vinayaṃ puthū.

Te appamattā pahitattā,
Mama sāsanakārakā;
Akāmassa te gamissanti,
Yattha gantvā na socare”.

“Satta vassāni bhagavantaṃ,
Anubandhiṃ padāpadaṃ;
Otāraṃ ­nādhi­gacchis­saṃ,
Sambuddhassa satīmato.

Medavaṇṇaṃva pāsāṇaṃ,
Vāyaso anupariyagā;
Apettha muduṃ vindema,
Api assādanā siyā.

Aladdhā tattha assādaṃ,
Vāyasetto apakkami;
Kākova selamāsajja,
Nibbijjāpema gotamaṃ”.

Tassa sokaparetassa,
Vīṇā kacchā abhassatha;
Tato so dummano yakkho,
Tat­the­vantara­dhāyathāti.

Padhānasuttaṃ dutiyaṃ.
