[II. Progress of the Sāsana]

Dutiya-Mārakathā
19. The Second Story about Māra Cf. Paṭhamamārapāsasuttaṁ in Mārasaṁyuttaṁ, SN1.4.4, where the order of the sections is reversed.01

Atha kho Bhagavā Vassaṁ vuttho bhikkhū āmantesi:
Then the Gracious One, having stayed for the Rains Retreat, The mention here of the end of the Rains Retreat must mean that this section is misplaced, or, more likely, a variation of the First Story about Māra, as that formed the basis for the Buddha sending out the sixty monks on pilgrimage, which implies that the Rains Retreat had already finished.02 addressed the monks, (saying):

“Mayhaṁ kho bhikkhave yoniso manasikārā yoniso sammappadhānā,
“I, monks, through wise application of thought, through wise endeavour,

anuttarā vimutti anuppattā anuttarā vimutti sacchikatā;
have attained supreme liberation, have experienced supreme liberation;

tumhe pi bhikkhave yoniso manasikārā yoniso sammappadhānā,
you also, monks, through wise application of thought, through wise endeavour,

anuttaraṁ vimuttiṁ anupāpuṇātha anuttaraṁ vimuttiṁ sacchikarothā.” ti
have attained supreme liberation, have experienced supreme liberation.”

Atha kho Māro Pāpimā yena Bhagavā tenupasaṅkami,
Then the Wicked Māra approached the Gracious One,

upasaṅkamitvā Bhagavantaṁ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi:
and after approaching the Gracious One he spoke this verse:

“Baddhosi Mārapāsehi ye dibbā ye ca mānusā,
“You are bound with Māra's snares, both divine and human,

Mārabandhanabaddhosi, na me samaṇa mokkhasī!” ti
You are bound in Māra's bonds, you are not free from me, ascetic!”

“Muttohaṁ Mārapāsehi ye dibbā ye ca mānusā,
“I am liberated from Māra's snares, both divine and human,

Mārabandhanamuttomhi: nihato tvam-asi Antakā!” ti
I am liberated from Māra's bonds: you are brought low, End-Maker!”

Atha kho Māro Pāpimā: “Jānāti maṁ Bhagavā jānāti maṁ Sugato!” ti
Then the Wicked Māra (understood): “The Gracious One knows me, the Fortunate One knows me!”

dukkhī dummano tatthevantaradhāyi.
and pained, depressed, he vanished right there.
