Sutta Nipāta 5.2

Ajita­māṇava­pucchā

“Kenassu nivuto loko,
(iccāyasmā ajito):
Kenassu nappakāsati;
­Kissā­bhi­lepanaṃ brūsi,
Kiṃsu tassa mahabbhayaṃ”.

“Avijjāya nivuto loko,
(ajitāti bhagavā):
Vevicchā pamādā nappakāsati;
Jappā­bhi­lepanaṃ brūmi,
Dukkhamassa mahabbhayaṃ”.

“Savanti sabbadhi sotā,
(iccāyasmā ajito):
Sotānaṃ kiṃ nivāraṇaṃ;
Sotānaṃ saṃvaraṃ brūhi,
Kena sotā pidhiyyare”.

“Yāni sotāni lokasmiṃ,
(ajitāti bhagavā):
Sati tesaṃ nivāraṇaṃ;
Sotānaṃ saṃvaraṃ brūmi,
Paññāyete pidhiyyare”.

“Paññā ceva sati yañca,
(iccāyasmā ajito):
Nāmarūpañca mārisa;
Etaṃ me puṭṭho pabrūhi,
Katthetaṃ uparujjhati”.

“Yametaṃ pañhaṃ apucchi,
ajita taṃ vadāmi te;
Yattha nāmañca rūpañca,
asesaṃ uparujjhati;
Viññāṇassa nirodhena,
etthetaṃ uparujjhati”.

“Ye ca saṅ­khā­ta­dhammāse,
ye ca sekhā puthū idha;
Tesaṃ me nipako iriyaṃ,
puṭṭho pabrūhi mārisa”.

“Kāmesu nābhigijjheyya,
Manasānāvilo siyā;
Kusalo sabbadhammānaṃ,
Sato bhikkhu paribbaje”ti.
