JARA VAGGA

146) Ko nu hāso kimānando, niccaṃ pajjalite sati; andhakārena onaddhā, padīpaṃ na gavesatha.


147) Passa cittakataṃ bimbaṃ, arukāyaṃ samussitaṃ; āturaṃ bahusaṅkappaṃ, yassa natthi dhuvaṃ ṭhiti.


148) Parijiṇṇamidaṃ rūpaṃ, roganīḷaṃ pabhaṅguraṃ; bhijjati pūtisandeho, maraṇantañhi jīvitaṃ.


149) Yānimāni apatthāni, alābūneva sārade. kāpotakāni aṭṭhīni, tāni disvāna kā rati.


150) Aṭṭhīnaṃ nagaraṃ kataṃ, maṃsalohitalepanaṃ; yattha jarā ca maccu ca, māno makkho ca ohito.


151) Jīranti ve rājarathā sucittā, atho sarīrampi jaraṃ upeti; satañca dhammo na jaraṃ upeti, santo have sabbhi pavedayanti.


152) Appassutāyaṃ puriso, balibaddhova jīrati; maṃsāni tassa vaḍḍhanti, paññā tassa na vaḍḍhati.


153) Anekajātisaṃsāraṃ, sandhāvissaṃ anibbisaṃ; gahakāraṃ ‚ gavesanto, dukkhā jāti punappunaṃ.


154) Gahakāraka diṭṭhosi, puna gehaṃ na kāhasi; sabbā te phāsukā bhaggā, gahakūṭaṃ visaṅkhataṃ; visaṅkhāragataṃ cittaṃ, taṇhānaṃ khayamajjhagā.


155) Acaritvā brahmacariyaṃ, aladdhā yobbane dhanaṃ; jiṇṇakoñcāva jhāyanti, khīṇamaccheva pallale.


156) Acaritvā brahmacariyaṃ, aladdhā yobbane dhanaṃ; senti cāpātikhīṇāva, purāṇāni anutthunaṃ.
