Ajakalāpa sutta: Sutta despre Ajakalāpa

Astfel am auzit: odata, Fericitul statea in Pāvā, la Monumentul Ajakalāpaka, in locul unde traia demonul Ajakalāpaka. Si, in acea vreme, Fericitul era asezat in aer liber, intr-o noapte orbitor de intunecata, iar un nor arunca stropi [de ploaie], unul cate unul.

Si, apoi, demonul Ajakalāpaka, dorind sa-i cauzeze teama, groaza si infiorare Fericitului, s-a apropiat de Fericit. Ajungand aproape de Fericit, de trei ori a facut un zgomot ingrozitor, [zicand]:

“Iata tie, ascetule, un spirit rau!“

Atunci, Fericitul, cunoscand aceasta semnificatie, a destainuit, cu acea ocazie, aceasta vorba inspirata:

“Atunci cand este desavarsit in propriile calitati, brahmanul transcende acest spirit rau si galagia lui!“
