With the abandoning and eradication

the holy life is fulfilled.

With the abandoning and eradication

With the abandoning and eradication

[ed1] Bhk. Thanissaro has suttas #254-259 grouped in one file and notes: The suttas in this section of the Fives are formulaic, and the Canon does not give them names. The following group of suttas deals with the topic of stinginess, and so I have named the group after their topic.
