V.9: Saddayamana Suttaɱ


Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

[V-9.1] I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was wandering among the Kosalans with a large community of monks. Now at that time, a large number of youths were making an uproar not far from the Blessed One. The Blessed One saw the large number of youths making an uproar not far away.

Then, on realizing the significance of that, the Blessed One on that occasion exclaimed:

False pundits, deluded,
saying nothing but words,
speaking as much as they like:
What leads them on
they don't know.
