[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, these five things
lead to the confounding,
the disappearance of Saddhamma.

What five?

Herein, monks, the monks master not Dhamma:
the sayings, psalms, catechisms, songs, solemnities, speeehes, birth-stories, marvels, runes.[1]

This, monks, is the first thing
that leads to the confounding,
the disappearance of Saddhamma.

They teach not others Dhamma in detail,
as heard,
as learned.

This, monks, is the second thing
that leads to the confounding,
the disappearance of Saddhamma.

They make not others speak it in detail,
as heard,
as learned.

This, monks, is the third thing
that leads to the confounding,
the disappearance of Saddhamma.

They make no repetition of it in detail,
as heard,
as learned.

This, monks, is the fourth thing
that leads to the confounding,
the disappearance of Saddhamma.

Again, monks, the monks do not in their hearts
turn over and ponder upon Dhamma,
they review it not in their minds.

This, monks, is the fifth thing
that leads to the confounding,
the disappearance of Saddhamma.

Monks, these are the five things
that leads to the confounding,
the disappearance of Saddhamma.

 


 

'Monks, these five things
lead to the stability,
non-confounding,
to the non-disappearance of Saddhamma.

What five?

Herein, monks, the monks master Dhamma:
the sayings, psalms, catechisms, songs, solemnities, speeehes, birth-stories, marvels, runes.

This, monks, is the first thing
that leads to the stability,
non-confounding,
to the non-disappearance of Saddhamma.

They teach others Dhamma in detail,
as heard,
as learned.

This, monks, is the second thing
that leads to the stability,
non-confounding,
to the non-disappearance of Saddhamma.

They make others speak it in detail,
as heard,
as learned.

This, monks, is the third thing
that leads to the stability,
non-confounding,
to the non-disappearance of Saddhamma.

They make repetition of it in detail,
as heard,
as learned.

This, monks, is the fourth thing
that leads to the stability,
non-confounding,
to the non-disappearance of Saddhamma.

Again, monks, the monks in their hearts
turn over and ponder upon Dhamma,
they review it not in their minds.

This, monks, is the fifth thing
that leads to the stability,
non-confounding,
to the non-disappearance of Saddhamma.

Verily, monks, these are the five things
that lead to the stability,
non-confounding,
to the non-disappearance of Saddhamma.
