Atha kho māgho māṇavo bhagavantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi—

“Pucchāmahaṃ gotamaṃ vadaññuṃ,

“Addhā amoghā mama pucchanā ahu,
(iti māgho māṇavo):
Akkhāsi me bhagavā dakkhiṇeyye;
Tvañhettha jānāsi yathā tathā idaṃ,
Tathā hi te vidito esa dhammo.

Yo yācayogo dānapati gahaṭṭho,
Puññatthiko yajati puññapekkho;
Dadaṃ paresaṃ idha annapānaṃ,
Akkhāhi me bhagavā yaññasampadaṃ”.

“Yajassu yajamāno māghāti bhagavā,
Sabbattha ca vippasādehi cittaṃ;
Ārammaṇaṃ yajamānassa yañño,
Ettha patiṭṭhāya jahāti dosaṃ.

So vītarāgo pavineyya dosaṃ,
Mettaṃ cittaṃ bhāva­ya­mappa­māṇaṃ;
Rattindivaṃ satata­mappa­matto,
Sabbā disā pharati appamaññaṃ”.

“Ko sujjhati muccati bajjhatī ca,
Kenattanā gacchati brahmalokaṃ;
Ajānato me muni brūhi puṭṭho,
Bhagavā hi me sakkhi brahmaj­jadiṭ­ṭho;
Tuvañhi no brahmasamosi saccaṃ,
Kathaṃ upapajjati brahmalokaṃ jutima”.

“Yo yajati tividhaṃ yaññasampadaṃ,
(māghāti bhagavā):
Ārādhaye dakkhiṇeyyebhi tādi;
Evaṃ yajitvā sammā yācayogo,
Upapajjati brahmalokanti brūmī”ti.

Evaṃ vutte, māgho māṇavo bhagavantaṃ etadavoca: “abhikkantaṃ, bho gotama … pe … ajjatagge pāṇupetaṃ saraṇaṃ gatan”ti.

Māghasuttaṃ pañcamaṃ.
