Chant Source Question

Postby danieLion » Sat Jun 15, 2013 7:03 am

Is the chant "Reflections on Sharings and Blessings" (verses of sharing and aspiration) from a sutta? If so, which one? If not, what's its origin?
Kindly,

Could you quote it here, please?

I wonder if that's the same one as "Reflections On Sharing Blessings" on pages 32-33 of the Amaravati Chanting Book?

Not that I could find when I looked for all the references during my time at Amaravati.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
