ATTA VAGGA

157) Attānañce piyaṃ jaññā, rakkheyya naṃ surakkhitaṃ; tiṇṇaṃ aññataraṃ yāmaṃ, paṭijaggeyya paṇḍito.


158) Attānameva paṭhamaṃ, patirūpe nivesaye; athaññamanusāseyya, na kilisseyya paṇḍito.


159) Attānaṃ ce tathā kayirā, yathāññamanusāsati; sudanto vata dametha, attā hi kira duddamo.


160) Attā hi attano nātho, ko hi nātho paro siyā; attanā hi sudantena, nāthaṃ labhati dullabhaṃ.


161) Attanā hi kataṃ pāpaṃ, attajaṃ attasambhavaṃ; abhimatthati dummedhaṃ, vajiraṃ vasmamayaṃ maṇiṃ.


162) Yassa accantadussīlyaṃ, māluvā sālamivotthataṃ; karoti so tathattānaṃ, yathā naṃ icchatī diso.


163) Sukarāni asādhūni, attano ahitāni ca; yaṃ ve hitañca sādhuñca, taṃ ve paramadukkaraṃ.


164) Yo sāsanaṃ arahataṃ, ariyānaṃ dhammajīvinaṃ; paṭikkosati dummedho, diṭṭhiṃ nissāya pāpikaṃ; phalāni kaṭṭhakasseva, attaghātāya phallati.


165) Attanā hi ‚ kataṃ pāpaṃ, attanā saṃkilissati; attanā akataṃ pāpaṃ, attanāva visujjhati; suddhī asuddhi paccattaṃ, nāñño aññaṃ visodhaye.


166) Attadatthaṃ paratthena, bahunāpi na hāpaye; attadatthamabhiññāya, sadatthapasuto siyā.
