Suttas 288

Bhaṇḍāgārika Suttaɱ

The Store-keeper (1)

[288.1] 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, if a monk follow the course of five things,
he ought not to be selected as one who is the store-keeper.

What five?

He goes astray from wish,
he goes astray from hatred,
he goes astray from confusion,
he goes astray from fear,
and he knows not what is guarded from what is not.

Monks, if a monk follow the course of these five things,
he ought not to be selected as one who is the store-keeper.

"Monks, if a monk follow the course of five things,
he may be selected as one who is the store-keeper.

What five?

He does not go astray from wish,
he does not go astray from hatred,
he does not go astray from confusion,
he does not go astray from fear,
and he knows what is guarded from what is not.

Monks, if a monk follow the course of these five things,
he may be selected as one who is the store-keeper.
