Sutta Nipāta 4.2

Guhaṭṭha­ka­sutta

Satto guhāyaṃ bahu­nābhi­channo,
Tiṭṭhaṃ naro mohanasmiṃ pagāḷho;
Dūre vivekā hi tathāvidho so,
Kāmā hi loke na hi suppahāyā.

Icchānidānā ­bhavasā­ta­baddhā,
Te duppamuñcā na hi aññamokkhā;
Pacchā pure vāpi apekkhamānā,
Ime va kāme purime va jappaṃ.

Kāmesu giddhā pasutā pamūḷhā,
Avadāniyā te visame niviṭṭhā;
Dukkhūpanītā paridevayanti,
Kiṃsū bhavissāma ito cutāse.

Tasmā hi sikkhetha idheva jantu,
Yaṃ kiñci jaññā visamanti loke;
Na tassa hetū visamaṃ careyya,
Appañhidaṃ jīvitamāhu dhīrā.

Passāmi loke pari­phanda­mānaṃ,
Pajaṃ imaṃ taṇhagataṃ bhavesu;
Hīnā narā maccumukhe lapanti,
Avītataṇhāse bhavābhavesu.

Mamāyite passatha phandamāne,
Maccheva appodake khīṇasote;
Etampi disvā amamo careyya,
Bhavesu āsatti­makub­bamāno.

Ubhosu antesu vineyya chandaṃ,
Phassaṃ pariññāya anānugiddho;
Yadattagarahī tadakubbamāno,
Na lippatī diṭṭhasutesu dhīro.

Saññaṃ pariññā vitareyya oghaṃ,
Pariggahesu muni nopalitto;
Abbūḷhasallo caramappamatto,
Nāsīsatī lokamimaṃ parañcāti.

Guhaṭṭha­ka­suttaṃ dutiyaṃ.
