The Book of the Gradual Sayings
The Book of the Fives
Chapter XXI Kimbila
Translated by E. M. Hare
He is either carried away himself by the sound;
or others are carried away thereby;
or householders are offended and say:
"Just as we sing,
these recluse Sakya sons sing!";
or as he strives alter purity of sound,
there is a break in concentration;
and folk coming after
fall into the way of (wrong) views.
Verily, monks, these are the five disadvantages
to one preaching Dhamma
in a long-drawn, plain-song voice.'
