LESSON 234

COURSE PROGRAM

Pañha Sutta: Questions

“There are these four ways of answering questions. Which
four? There are questions that should be answered categorically
[straightforwardly yes, no, this, that]. There are questions that should be
answered with an analytical (qualified) answer [defining or redefining the
terms]. There are questions that should be answered with a counter-question.
There are questions that should be put aside. These are the four ways of
answering questions.”

 

First the categorical answer,

then the qualified,

third, the type to be counter-questioned,

& fourth, the one to be set aside.

Any monk who knows which is which,

in line with the Dhamma,

is said to be skilled

in the four types of questions:

hard to overcome, hard to beat,

profound, hard to defeat.

He knows what’s worthwhile

& what’s not,

proficient in (recognizing) both,

he rejects the worthless,

grasps the worthwhile.

He’s called          one
who has broken through

to what’s worthwhile,

prudent,

wise.
