[185]

[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

"Monks."

'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:

"Monks, that monk who is a maker of strife,
a maker of quarrels,
a maker of contention,
a maker of brawls,
a maker of disputes[1]
five disadvantages may be expected for him.

What five?

He[2] reaches not the unreached (state);
he falls away from the reached;
an evil rumour of his worth spreads abroad;
he dies muddled (in thought);
and on the breaking up of the body after death
he arises in the wayward way,
the ill way,
the abyss,
hell.

Monks, that monk who is a maker of strife,
a maker of quarrels,
a maker of contention,
a maker of brawls,
a maker of disputes —
these five disadvantages may be expected for him.'
