Evaṃ me sutaṃ—​   ekaṃ samayaṃ bhagavā sāvatthiyaṃ viharati jetavane anātha­piṇḍi­kassa ārāme. Tena kho pana samayena āyasmā lakuṇḍa­ka­bhaddiyo sambahulānaṃ bhikkhūnaṃ piṭṭhito piṭṭhito yena bhagavā tenupasaṅkami.

Addasā kho bhagavā āyasmantaṃ lakuṇḍa­ka­bhaddi­yaṃ dūratova sambahulānaṃ bhikkhūnaṃ piṭṭhito piṭṭhito āgacchantaṃ dubbaṇṇaṃ duddasikaṃ okoṭimakaṃ yebhuyyena bhikkhūnaṃ paribhūtarūpaṃ. Disvāna bhikkhū āmantesi: 

“Passatha no tumhe, bhikkhave, etaṃ bhikkhuṃ dūratova sambahulānaṃ bhikkhūnaṃ piṭṭhito piṭṭhito āgacchantaṃ dubbaṇṇaṃ duddasikaṃ okoṭimakaṃ yebhuyyena bhikkhūnaṃ paribhūtarūpan”ti? “Evaṃ, bhante”ti.

“Eso, bhikkhave, bhikkhu mahiddhiko mahānubhāvo. Na ca sā samāpatti sulabharūpā yā tena bhikkhunā asamā­panna­pubbā—Yassa catthāya kulaputtā sammadeva agārasmā anagāriyaṃ pabbajanti, tadanuttaraṃ—brahma­cari­ya­pari­yosānaṃ diṭṭheva dhamme sayaṃ abhiññā sacchikatvā upasampajja viharatī”ti.

Atha kho bhagavā etamatthaṃ viditvā tāyaṃ velāyaṃ imaṃ udānaṃ udānesi: 

Nelaṅgo setapacchādo,
ekāro vattatī ratho;
Anīghaṃ passa āyantaṃ,
chinnasotaṃ abandhanan”ti.

Pañcamaṃ.
