“Sappuriso, bhikkhave, kule jāyamāno bahuno janassa atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; mātāpitūnaṃ atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; puttadārassa atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; dāsakam­ma­ka­ra­porisassa atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; mittāmaccānaṃ atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; samaṇab­rāhma­ṇā­naṃ atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti.

Seyyathāpi, bhikkhave, mahāmegho sabbasassāni sampādento bahuno janassa atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; evamevaṃ kho, bhikkhave, sappuriso kule jāyamāno bahuno janassa atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; mātāpitūnaṃ atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; puttadārassa atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; dāsakam­ma­ka­ra­porisassa atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; mittāmaccānaṃ atthāya hitāya sukhāya hoti; samaṇab­rāhma­ṇā­naṃ atthāya hitāya sukhāya hotīti.

Hito bahunnaṃ paṭipajja bhoge,
Taṃ devatā rakkhati dhammaguttaṃ;
Bahussutaṃ sīla­va­tū­papan­naṃ,
Dhamme ṭhitaṃ na vijahati kitti.

Dhammaṭṭhaṃ sīlasampannaṃ,
saccavādiṃ hirīmanaṃ;
Nekkhaṃ jambonadasseva,
ko taṃ nindi­tu­marahati;
Devāpi naṃ pasaṃsanti,
brahmunāpi pasaṃsito”ti.

Dutiyaṃ.
