pūrento bodhisambhāre ~ nibbatto morayoninaṁ.
yena saṁvihitārakkhaṁ ~ mahāsattaṁ vane carā

cirassaṁ vāyamantā pi, ~ neva sakkhiṁsu gaṇhituṁ.
“brahmamantan”-ti akkhātaṁ, ~ parittaṁ taṁ bhaṇāmahe.

⏑−⏑−,¦−⏑−¦−⏑−− Tuṭṭhubha Metre: all lines in this sutta are to be understood as Tuṭṭhubha unless otherwise indicated.01
“udetayaṁ cakkhumā ekarājā,

⏑−⏑−¦−,⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
harissavaṇṇo paṭhavippabhāso,

−−⏑−¦−⏑,⏑¦−⏑−−¦¦⏑⏑−⏑−− irregular This line is hypermetric through the repetition of paṭhavippabhāsaṁ, which has probably arisen through imitation of the preceding line.02
taṁ taṁ namassāmi harissavaṇṇaṁ paṭhavippabhāsaṁ,

⏑−⏑−¦−,⏑⏑¦−⏑⏑⏑ Note the very unusual resolution in this line at the 10th syllable.03
tayajja guttā viharemu divasaṁ. [1]

⏑−⏑−¦−−,⏑¦−⏑−⏑− Jagatī x 2
namatthu buddhānaṁ! namatthu bodhiyā!

⏑−⏑−¦−−,⏑¦−⏑−⏑−
namo vimuttānaṁ! namo vimuttiyā!” Metre: the last 2 lines both show the unusual heavy 6th syllable.04

⏑−−⏑¦−−−−¦¦−−⏑⏑¦⏑−⏑− irregular
imaṁ so parittaṁ katvā ~ moro carati esanā. [2]
