Sutta where the Buddha gives back anger/insults directed at him?

Post by Mkoll » Thu Jun 04, 2015 4:59 pm

Hello all,

I'm looking for the sutta where someone is angry and insulting to the Buddha and the Buddha calmly says it is not mine. He kind of "gives it back" to the one who's being insulting.

With metta,

James

"I do not perceive even one other thing, o monks, that when developed and cultivated entails such great happiness as the mind" (AN 1.10, transl. Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi)
"So this spiritual life, monks, does not have gain, honor, and renown for its benefit, or the attainment of moral discipline for its benefit, or the attainment of concentration for its benefit, or knowledge and vision for its benefit. But it is this unshakable liberation of mind that is the goal of this spiritual life, its heartwood, and its end," (MN 29, transl. Ven Bhikkhu Bodhi)
