Sutta Nipāta 3.11

Nālakasutta

Ānandajāte tidasagaṇe patīte,
Sakkañca indaṃ sucivasane ca deve;
Dussaṃ gahetvā atiriva thomayante,
Asito isi addasa divāvihāre.

Disvāna deve muditamane udagge,
Cittiṃ karitvāna idamavoca tattha;
Kiṃ devasaṅgho atiriva kalyarūpo,
Dussaṃ gahetvā ramayatha kiṃ paṭicca.

Yadāpi āsī asurehi saṅgamo,
Jayo surānaṃ asurā parājitā;
Tadāpi netādiso lomahaṃsano,
Kimabbhutaṃ daṭṭhu marū pamoditā.

Seḷenti gāyanti ca vādayanti ca,
Bhujāni phoṭenti ca naccayanti ca;
Pucchāmi vohaṃ meru­muddha­vāsine,
Dhunātha me saṃsayaṃ khippa mārisā”.

“So bodhisatto ratanavaro atulyo,
Manussaloke hita­su­khat­thāya jāto;
Sakyāna gāme janapade lumbineyye,
Tenamha tuṭṭhā atiriva kalyarūpā.

So sabba­sat­tuttamo aggapuggalo,
Narāsabho sabba­pajā­namuttamo;
Vattessati cakkamisivhaye vane,
Nadaṃva sīho balavā migābhibhū”.

Taṃ saddaṃ sutvā turitamavasarī so,
Suddhodanassa tada bhavanaṃ upāvisi;
Nisajja tattha idamavocāsi sakye,
Kuhiṃ kumāro ahamapi daṭṭhukāmo”.

Tato kumāraṃ jalitamiva suvaṇṇaṃ,
Ukkāmukheva sukusa­la­sam­pahaṭ­ṭhaṃ;
Daddallamānaṃ siriyā anomavaṇṇaṃ,
Dassesu puttaṃ asitavhayassa sakyā.

Disvā kumāraṃ sikhimiva pajjalantaṃ,
Tārāsabhaṃva nabhasigamaṃ visuddhaṃ;
Suriyaṃ tapantaṃ sarada­rivab­bhamuttaṃ,
Ānandajāto vipulamalattha pītiṃ.

Anekasākhañca sahassamaṇ­ḍalaṃ,
Chattaṃ marū dhāra­yu­manta­likkhe;
Suvaṇṇadaṇḍā vītipatanti cāmarā,
Na dissare cāmara­chatta­gāhakā.

Disvā jaṭī kaṇhasirivhayo isi,
Suvaṇṇanikkhaṃ viya paṇḍukambale;
Setañca chattaṃ dhariyanta muddhani,
Udaggacitto sumano paṭiggahe.

Paṭiggahetvā pana sakyapuṅgavaṃ,
Jigīsako ­lak­kha­ṇa­manta­pāragū;
Pasannacitto gira­mab­bhu­dīrayi,
Anuttarāyaṃ dvi­padāna­muttamo”.

Athattano gama­na­manus­sa­ranto,
Akalyarūpo gaḷayati assukāni;
Disvāna sakyā isimavocuṃ rudantaṃ,
No ce kumāre bhavissati antarāyo”.

Disvāna sakye isimavoca akalye,
Nāhaṃ kumāre ahi­ta­manus­sa­rāmi;
Na cāpimassa bhavissati antarāyo,
Na orakāyaṃ adhimānasā bhavātha.

Sambodhiyaggaṃ phusissatāyaṃ kumāro,
So dhammacakkaṃ parama­vi­sud­dha­dassī;
Vattessatāyaṃ bahu­jana­hi­tānukampī,
Vitthārikassa bhavissati brahmacariyaṃ.

Mamañca āyu na cira­mi­dhāva­seso,
Athantarā me bhavissati kālakiriyā;
Sohaṃ na sossaṃ asamadhurassa dhammaṃ,
Tenamhi aṭṭo byasanaṅgato aghāvī”.

So sākiyānaṃ vipulaṃ janetvā pītiṃ,
Antepuramhā niggamā brahmacārī;
So bhāgineyyaṃ sayaṃ anukampamāno,
Samādapesi asamadhurassa dhamme.

“Buddhoti ghosaṃ yada parato suṇāsi,
Sambodhipatto vivarati dhammamaggaṃ;
Gantvāna tattha samayaṃ paripucchamāno,
Carassu tasmiṃ bhagavati brahmacariyaṃ”.

Tenānusiṭṭho hitamanena tādinā,
Anāgate parama­vi­sud­dha­dassinā;
So nālako upaci­ta­puñña­sañ­cayo,
Jinaṃ patikkhaṃ parivasi rakkhitindriyo.

Sutvāna ghosaṃ jinava­racak­kavattane,
Gantvāna disvā isinisabhaṃ pasanno;
Moneyyaseṭṭhaṃ munipavaraṃ apucchi,
Samāgate asitāvhayassa sāsaneti.

Vatthugāthā niṭṭhitā.

“Aññātametaṃ vacanaṃ,
Asitassa yathātathaṃ;
Taṃ taṃ gotama pucchāmi,
Sabbadhammāna pāraguṃ.

Anagā­ri­yupetassa,
Bhikkhācariyaṃ jigīsato;
Muni pabrūhi me puṭṭho,
Moneyyaṃ uttamaṃ padaṃ”.

“Moneyyaṃ te upaññissaṃ,
(iti bhagavā):
Dukkaraṃ dura­bhi­sam­bha­vaṃ;
Handa te naṃ pavakkhāmi,
Santhambhassu daḷho bhava.

Samānabhāgaṃ kubbetha,
Gāme akkuṭṭha­vandi­taṃ;
Manopadosaṃ rakkheyya,
Santo anuṇṇato care.

Uccāvacā niccharanti,
Dāye aggisikhūpamā;
Nāriyo muniṃ palobhenti,
Tā su taṃ mā palobhayuṃ.

Virato methunā dhammā,
Hitvā kāme paropare;
Aviruddho asāratto,
Pāṇesu tasathāvare.

Yathā ahaṃ tathā ete,
Yathā ete tathā ahaṃ;
Attānaṃ upamaṃ katvā,
Na haneyya na ghātaye.

Hitvā icchañca lobhañca,
Yattha satto puthujjano;
Cakkhumā paṭipajjeyya,
Tareyya narakaṃ imaṃ.

Ūnūdaro mitāhāro,
Appicchassa alolupo;
Sadā icchāya nicchāto,
Aniccho hoti nibbuto.

Sa piṇḍacāraṃ caritvā,
­Vananta­ma­bhihā­raye;
Upaṭṭhito rukkhamūlasmiṃ,
Āsanūpagato muni.

Sa jhānapasuto dhīro,
Vanante ramito siyā;
Jhāyetha rukkhamūlasmiṃ,
Attāna­mabhito­sayaṃ.

Tato ratyā vivasāne,
Gāmanta­ma­bhihā­raye;
Avhānaṃ nābhinandeyya,
Abhihārañca gāmato.

Na munī gāmamāgamma,
Kulesu sahasā care;
Ghāsesanaṃ chinnakatho,
Na vācaṃ payutaṃ bhaṇe.

Alatthaṃ yadidaṃ sādhu,
Nālatthaṃ kusalaṃ iti;
Ubhayeneva so tādī,
Rukkhaṃ­vupa­nivat­tati.

Sa pattapāṇi vicaranto,
Amūgo mūgasammato;
Appaṃ dānaṃ na hīḷeyya,
Dātāraṃ nāvajāniyā.

Uccāvacā hi paṭipadā,
Samaṇena pakāsitā;
Na pāraṃ diguṇaṃ yanti,
Nayidaṃ ekaguṇaṃ mutaṃ.

Yassa ca visatā natthi,
Chinnasotassa bhikkhuno;
Kiccā­kiccap­pahīnassa,
Pariḷāho na vijjati.

Moneyyaṃ te upaññissaṃ,
Khuradhārūpamo bhave;
Jivhāya tālumāhacca,
Udare saññato siyā.

Alīnacitto ca siyā,
Na cāpi bahu cintaye;
Nirāmagandho asito,
Brahma­cari­ya­parā­yaṇo.

Ekāsanassa sikkhetha,
Sama­ṇū­pāsa­nassa ca;
Ekattaṃ monamakkhātaṃ,
Eko ce abhiramissasi;
Atha bhāhisi dasadisā.

Sutvā dhīrānaṃ nighosaṃ,
Jhāyīnaṃ kāmacāginaṃ;
Tato hiriñca saddhañca,
Bhiyyo kubbetha māmako.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha,
Sobbhesu padaresu ca;
Saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
Tuṇhī yanti mahodadhī.

Yadūnakaṃ taṃ saṇati,
Yaṃ pūraṃ santameva taṃ;
Aḍḍha­kum­bhū­pamo bālo,
Rahado pūrova paṇḍito.

Yaṃ samaṇo bahuṃ bhāsati,
Upetaṃ atthasañhitaṃ;
Jānaṃ so dhammaṃ deseti,
Jānaṃ so bahu bhāsati.

Yo ca jānaṃ saṃyatatto,
Jānaṃ na bahu bhāsati;
Sa munī monamarahati,
Sa munī monamajjhagā”ti.

Nālakasuttaṃ ekādasamaṃ.
