Daily Advice to Bhikkhus
Abstaining from all evil,
Doing what is good,
Cleansing one’s mind,
This is the teaching of all the Buddhas.
Patience is the highest practice,
Nibbāna is supreme, say the Buddhas,
A mendicant does not harm others,
A recluse oppresses no one.
Not insulting, not harming,
Restrained according to the moral code,
Moderating in food,
Dwelling in solitude,
Engaging in higher mental development,
This is the teaching of all the Buddhas.
Ovāda Pātimokkha
Sabbapāpassa akaraṇaṃ
Kusalassa upasampadā
Sacitta‧pariyodapanaṃ
Etaṃ Buddhāna’sāsanaṃ.
Khantī paramaṃ tapo titikkhā
Nibbānaṃ paramaṃ vadanti Buddhā
Na hi pabbajito parūpaghātī
Samaṇo hoti paraṃ viheṭhayanto.
Anūpavādo anūpaghāto
Pātimokkhe ca saṃvaro
Mattaññutā ca bhattasmiṃ
Pantañ ca sayanāsanaṃ
Adhicitte ca āyogo
Etaṃ Buddhāna’sāsanaṃ.

Therein what are 'six (types of) disrespect'? One dwells without respect, without deference for the Teacher; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Teaching; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Order; one dwells without respect, without deference for the precepts; one dwells without respect, without deference for heedfulness; one dwells without respect, without deference for hospitality. These are six (types of) disrespect.

Hello,

does anybody know the canonical source where the history of the spontaneous meeting of 1,250 arahants on Magha Puja Day is described? Is it available in English somewhere?

Many thanks, :anjali:

may it be referring to dn 20?

This website says that the event is recorded in the commentary to DN20, but I couldn't really find it there. Not quite sure where it originated...

Best wishes,
