Toyena Nupalippati – Unsmeared by Water

Aṅguttara Nikāya
4. Cakkavagga
36. Doṇasutta

Puṇḍarīkaṃ yathā vaggu,
Toyena nupalippati;
Nupalippāmi lokena,
Tasmā buddhosmi brāhmaṇā.

Like a blue lotus, rising up,
unsmeared by water,
unsmeared am I by the world,
and so, brahman,
I’m awake.”

Buddha, Dona Sutta (AN 4.36)
