Paṭhama Vivāda-Mūla Suttaɱ
Roots of Quarrels (a)
Translated from the Pali by F. L. Woodward, M.A.
 Thus have I heard:
Once the Exalted One was dwelling near Sāvatthī.
Now the venerable Upāli came to see the Exalted One,
and on coming to him
and sat down at one side.
So seated, he said this to the Exalted One:
'Pray, sir, what are the roots of quarrels?'
monks proclaim not-dhamma as dhamma
and dhamma as not-dhamma;
monks proclaim not-discipline as discipline
and discipline as not-discipline;
proclaim what was not said, not uttered by the Wayfarer
as being his words and utterance;
proclaim his words and utterance
as not said, not uttered;
proclaim what was not practised by the Wayfarer
as his practice,
and the reverse;
proclaim what was not ordained by the Wayfarer
as ordained by him,
and the reverse.
These ten, Upāli, are the roots of quarrels'
