Ratana Sutta

Yânîdha bhûtâni samâgatâni - bhummâni vâ yâ niva antalikkhê
Sabbêva bhûtâ sumanâ bhavantû - athôpi sakkacca sunantu bhâsitam.
Tasmâhi bhûtâni sâmêtha sabbê - mettam karôtha mânusiya pajâya,
Divâ ca rattô ca haranti yê balim - tasmâhi nê rakkhatha appamattâ.
Yam kinci vittam idha vâ huram vâ - saggêsu vâ yam ratanam panitam,
Nano samam atthi tathâgatena - idampi buddhê ratanam panîtam,
Êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Khayam virâgam amatam panîtam - yadajjhagâ sakkyamunî samâhito,
Na têna dhammena samatthi kinci - idampi dhammê ratanam panîtam
Êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Yambuddha settho parivannayî sucim - samâdhi mânam tarikañña mâhu
Samâdhinâ têna samô na vijjati - idampi dhammê ratanam panîtam
Êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Ye puggalâ attha satam pasatthâ - cattâri êtâni yugâni honti,
Te dakkhineyyâ sugatassa sâvakâ - êtêsu dinnâni mahapphalâni,
Idampi sanghê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Ye suppa yuttâ manasâ dalhêna - nikkamino gôtama sâsanamhi
Te patti pattâ amatam vigayha - laddhâ mudhâ nibbutim bhunjamânâ
Idampi sanghê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.

Yathinda khîlo pathavim sito siyâ - catubbhi vâtêbhi asampa kampiyo,
Tathûpamam sappurisam vadâmi -- yô ariya saccâni avecca passati,
Idampi sanghê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Yê ariya saccâni vibhâvayanti - gambhira paññnêna sudêsitâni,
Kincâpi tê honti bhusappamattâ - na te bhavam attamam âdiyanti,
Idampi sanghê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Sahâvassa dassana sampadâya - tayassu dhammâ jahitâ bhavanti,
Sakkâya ditthi vicikicchitam ca -- silabbatam vâpi yadatthi kinci,
Catûhapâye hi ca vippamutto - Chacâbhi thânâni abhabbo kâtum,
Idampi sanghê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Kincâpi sô kammam karôti pâpakam - kâyêna vâcâ udacêtasâ vâ,
Abhabbo sô tassa paticchâdâya - abhabbatâ ditta padassa vuttâ,
Idampi sanghê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Vanappagumbê yathâ phussitaggê - gimhâna mâsê pathamasmin gimhe,
Tathûpamam dhamma varam adêsayi -- nibbânagâmin paramam hitâya,
Idampi buddhê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Varô varaññû varadô varâharo - anuttarô dhamma varam adêsayi,
Idampi buddhê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Khinam purânam navam netthi sambhavam - viratta cittâ âyatike bhavasmim,
Te khina bijâ avirulhicchandâ - nibbanti dhirâ yathâ yam padipo
Idampi sanghê ratanam panîtam - êtêna saccêna suvatthi hôtu.
Yânîdha bhûtâni samâgatani -- bhummani vâ yâniva antalikkhe,
Tathâgatam dêva manussa pûjitam- Buddham namasâma suvatthi hotu.
Yânîdha bhûtâni samâgatani -- bhummani vâ yâniva antalikkhe,
Tathâgatam dêva manussa pûjitam - Dhammam namassâma suvatthi hotu.
Yânîdha bhûtâni samâgatani -- bhummani vâ yâniva antalikkhe,
Tathâgatam dêva manussa pûjitam - Sangham namassâma suvatthi hotu.
