Signs of Declension of Buddha Dhamma

Hi all,

I remember a monk telling of some ancient story about the Buddha (or a main main disciple)
talking about future signs of declension of Buddha Dhamma. Among those where having robes
including a bag before the belly and monks writing poems. That is all I remember.

Anyone ever heard of that?

Regards,
Mirco

Hello mirco,

Not sure what you mean by "declension" - but if you mean disappearance of the Dhamma, then this article may be of assistance:

Sorry if I misunderstood the question.
