“Na brāhmaṇo nomhi na rājaputto,
Na vessāyano uda koci nomhi;
Gottaṃ pariññāya puthujjanānaṃ,
Akiñcano manta carāmi loke.

Saṅghāṭivāsī agaho carāmi,
Nivuttakeso abhinibbutatto;
Alippamāno idha māṇavehi,
Akallaṃ maṃ brāhmaṇa pucchasi gottapañhaṃ”.

“Pucchanti ve bho brāhmaṇā brāhmaṇebhi,
Saha brāhmaṇo no bhavan”ti.

“Brāhmaṇo hi ce tvaṃ brūsi,
Mañca brūsi abrāhmaṇaṃ;
Taṃ taṃ sāvittiṃ pucchāmi,
Tipadaṃ catu­vīsa­tak­kha­raṃ”.

“Kiṃ nissitā isayo manujā,
Khattiyā brāhmaṇā devatānaṃ;
Yañña­makappa­yiṃsu puthū idha loke”.

“Yadantagū vedagū yaññakāle,
Yassāhutiṃ labhe tassijjheti brūmi”.

“Addhā hi tassa hutamijjhe,
(iti brāhmaṇo):
Yaṃ tādisaṃ vedagu­maddasāma;
Tumhādisānañhi adassanena,
Añño jano bhuñjati pūraḷāsaṃ”.

“Tasmātiha tvaṃ brāhmaṇa atthena,
Atthiko upasaṅkamma puccha;
Santaṃ vidhūmaṃ anīghaṃ nirāsaṃ,
Appevidha abhivinde sumedhaṃ”.

“Yaññe ratohaṃ bho gotama,
Yaññaṃ yiṭṭhukāmo nāhaṃ pajānāmi;
Anusāsatu maṃ bhavaṃ,
Yattha hutaṃ ijjhate brūhi me taṃ”.

“Tena hi tvaṃ, brāhmaṇa, odahassu sotaṃ; dhammaṃ te desessāmi—

Mā jātiṃ pucchī caraṇañca puccha,
Kaṭṭhā have jāyati jātavedo;
Nīcākulīnopi munī dhitīmā,
Ājāniyo hoti hirīnisedho.

Saccena danto damasā upeto,
Vedantagū vūsitab­rahma­cariyo;
Kālena tamhi habyaṃ pavecche,
Yo brāhmaṇo puññapekkho yajetha.

Ye kāme hitvā agahā caranti,
Susaññatattā tasaraṃva ujjuṃ;
Kālena tesu habyaṃ pavecche,
Yo brāhmaṇo puññapekkho yajetha.

Ye vītarāgā susa­māhi­tin­driyā,
Candova rāhuggahaṇā pamuttā;

Asajjamānā vicaranti loke,
Sadā satā hitvā mamāyitāni;
Kālena tesu habyaṃ pavecche,

Yo kāme hitvā abhibhuyyacārī,
Yo vedi jātīmaraṇassa antaṃ;
Parinibbuto udakarahadova sīto,
Tathāgato arahati pūraḷāsaṃ.

Samo samehi visamehi dūre,
Tathāgato hoti anantapañño;
Anūpalitto idha vā huraṃ vā,
Tathāgato arahati pūraḷāsaṃ.

Yamhi na māyā vasati na māno,
Yo vītalobho amamo nirāso;
Paṇunnakodho abhinibbutatto,
Yo brāhmaṇo sokamalaṃ ahāsi;
Tathāgato arahati pūraḷāsaṃ.

Nivesanaṃ yo manaso ahāsi,
Pariggahā yassa na santi keci;
Anupādiyāno idha vā huraṃ vā,

Vidhūpitā atthagatā na santi;
Santo upādānakhaye vimutto,

Saṃyojanaṃ jāti­kha­yan­tadassī,
Yopānudi rāgapathaṃ asesaṃ;
Suddho nidoso vimalo akāco,
Tathāgato arahati pūraḷāsaṃ.

Yo attano attānaṃ nānupassati,
Samāhito ujjugato ṭhitatto;
Sa ve anejo akhilo akaṅkho,
Tathāgato arahati pūraḷāsaṃ.

Mohantarā yassa na santi keci,
Sabbesu dhammesu ca ñāṇadassī;
Sarīrañca antimaṃ dhāreti,
Patto ca sam­bodhi­ma­nutta­raṃ sivaṃ;
Ettāvatā yakkhassa suddhi,
Tathāgato arahati pūraḷāsaṃ”.

Hutañca mayhaṃ hutamatthu saccaṃ,
Yaṃ tādisaṃ vedagunaṃ alatthaṃ;
Brahmā hi sakkhi paṭigaṇhātu me bhagavā,
Bhuñjatu me bhagavā pūraḷāsaṃ”.

“Gāthābhigītaṃ me abhojaneyyaṃ,
Sampassataṃ brāhmaṇa nesa dhammo;
Gāthābhigītaṃ panudanti buddhā,
Dhamme satī brāhmaṇa vuttiresā.

Aññena ca kevalinaṃ mahesiṃ,
Khīṇāsavaṃ kukkuc­ca­vū­pasan­taṃ;
Annena pānena upaṭṭhahassu,
Khettañhi taṃ puññapekkhassa hoti”.

“Sādhāhaṃ bhagavā tathā vijaññaṃ,
Yo dakkhiṇaṃ bhuñjeyya mādisassa;
Yaṃ yaññakāle pariyesamāno,
Pappuyya tava sāsanaṃ”.

“Sārambhā yassa vigatā,
Cittaṃ yassa anāvilaṃ;
Vippamutto ca kāmehi,
Thinaṃ yassa panūditaṃ.

Sīmantānaṃ vinetāraṃ,
Jāti­mara­ṇa­ko­vidaṃ;
Muniṃ moneyya­sam­pannaṃ,
Tādisaṃ yaññamāgataṃ.

Bhakuṭiṃ vinayitvāna,
Pañjalikā namassatha;
Pūjetha annapānena,
Evaṃ ijjhanti dakkhiṇā”.

“Buddho bhavaṃ arahati pūraḷāsaṃ,
Puñ­ña­khetta­ma­nutta­raṃ;
Āyāgo sabbalokassa,
Bhoto dinnaṃ mahapphalan”ti.
