8. Raṭṭha­pālat­thera­apadāna

“Padumuttarassa bhagavato,
Lokajeṭṭhassa tādino;
Varanāgo mayā dinno,
Īsādanto urūḷhavā.

Setacchatto pasobhito,
sakappano sahatthipo;
Agghāpetvāna taṃ sabbaṃ,
saṃghārāmaṃ akārayiṃ.

Catu­paññā­sa­sahas­sāni,
pāsāde kārayiṃ ahaṃ;
Mahoghadānaṃ karitvāna,
niyyādesiṃ mahesino.

Anumodi mahāvīro,
sayambhū aggapuggalo;
Sabbe jane hāsayanto,
desesi amataṃ padaṃ.

Taṃ me buddho viyākāsi,
jala­juttara­nā­mako;
Bhikkhusaṃghe nisīditvā,
imā gāthā abhāsatha.

‘Catu­paññā­sa­sahas­sāni,
pāsāde kārayī ayaṃ;
Kathayissāmi vipākaṃ,
suṇotha mama bhāsato.

Aṭṭhā­ra­sa­sahas­sāni,
kūṭāgārā bhavissare;
Byamhuttamamhi nibbattā,
sabbasoṇṇamayā ca te.

Paññā­sak­khat­tuṃ devindo,
devarajjaṃ karissati;
Aṭṭha­paññā­sak­khat­tuñca,
cakkavattī bhavissati.

Kappa­sata­sahas­samhi,
okkā­kakula­sam­bhavo;
Gotamo nāma gottena,
satthā loke bhavissati.

Devalokā cavitvāna,
sukkamūlena codito;
Aḍḍhe kule mahābhoge,
nibbattissati tāvade.

So pacchā pabbajitvāna,
sukkamūlena codito;
Raṭṭhapāloti nāmena,
hessati satthu sāvako.

Padhā­na­pahitatto so,
upasanto nirūpadhi;
Sabbāsave pariññāya,
nib­bā­yis­sati­nāsavo’.

Uṭṭhāya abhinikkhamma,
jahitā bhogasampadā;
Kheḷapiṇḍeva bhogamhi,
pemaṃ mayhaṃ na vijjati.

Vīriyaṃ me dhuradhorayhaṃ,
yogak­khemā­dhi­vāhanaṃ;
Dhāremi antimaṃ dehaṃ,
sammā­sambud­dha­sāsane.

Paṭisambhidā catasso,
vimokkhāpi ca aṭṭhime;
Chaḷabhiññā sacchikatā,
kataṃ buddhassa sāsanaṃ”.

Itthaṃ sudaṃ āyasmā raṭṭhapālo thero imā gāthāyo abhāsitthāti.

Raṭṭha­pālat­theras­sāpadā­naṃ aṭṭhamaṃ.
