4Vātaṁ etaṁ mama so,
attā no ca me siyā;
Natthi karoto hetu ca,
mahādiṭṭhena aṭṭhamaṁ.

5Sassato asassato ceva,
antānantavā ca vuccati;
Taṁ jīvaṁ aññaṁ jīvañca,
tathāgatena cattāro.

6Rūpī attā hoti arūpī ca attā hoti,
Rūpī ca arūpī ca attā hoti;
Neva rūpī nārūpī attā hoti,
Ekantasukhī attā hoti.

7Ekantadukkhī attā hoti,
Sukhadukkhī attā hoti;
Adukkhamasukhī attā hoti,
Arogo paraṁ maraṇāti;
Ime chabbīsati suttā,
Dutiyavārena desitā.
