It is not uncommon today for the preachers to take matters of the Dhamma in the form of accusations against other people, whether from personal or factual perspectives or from different perspectives. It is clear from many cases that many things that happen in the name of the Dhamma in the name of the Triple Gem are not dharmic or disciplinary. Although these facts have been taken up in many ways, this time the editorial is aimed at summarizing a number of very important points.
Even during the time of the Buddha, there were accusations against others. In such cases, the Buddha pointed out some very important points to consider before blaming others.
Anguttara Nikaya 6 <Jatta Bhaga <Dasaka Nipataya <1.5 Akkosa Vagga . I will file a very brief list of the facts contained in the <4 Kusinara Sutta.
As is always the case, if the Buddha has given an exhortation to extinguish a sermon as “Mahaneni”, it is generally for the benefit of both the laity and the laity. So it is up to you, the intelligent real people, to bring these things closer to your life wisely.
The prosecution who wishes to accuse others should investigate whether they have the following 5 points.
01. One should examine whether there is physical restraint in oneself so that others who have no faults cannot be equated. Only then can you be accused of being physically inactive in the first place.
02. One should examine whether there is verbal modesty in oneself so that others who have no faults cannot be equated. Only then can you be accused of being verbally abusive in the first place.
03. One should inquire whether there is a tendency in one’s mind to have a tendency to clash with the sublime. We need to examine whether things are going on with a compassionate mind. Only then can you first accuse the sublime of being merciful.
04. One should inquire whether he is polytheistic and can declare celibacy which is obsolete in the beginning and in the middle. Only then can you first cleanse your vision and accuse the Dhamma of being perfect.
05. One should inquire whether there is a complete knowledge, understanding and complete discipline in oneself regarding the disciplines given to the Bhikkhu Bhikkhunis, the parts of the Dhamma which are pointed out in the dual pratimoksha. Only then can anyone who is unable to answer the Buddha’s question as to where such a statement was made accuse you of being disciplined in discipline first.
May you, the wise, be at peace with the Triple Gem until the next editorial brings you many more facts to look into!
