Dhammaññu Sutta: One With a Sense of Dhamma

A monk endowed with these seven qualities is
worthy of gifts, worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings, worthy of respect,
an unexcelled field of merit for the world. Which seven? There is the case
where a monk is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, a sense of
himself, a sense of moderation, a sense of time, a sense of social gatherings,
& a sense of distinctions among individuals.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of Dhamma? There is the case
where a monk knows the Dhamma: dialogues, narratives of mixed prose and verse,
explanations, verses, spontaneous exclamations, quotations, birth stories,
amazing events, question & answer sessions.[1]

If he didn’t know the Dhamma — dialogues, narratives of mixed prose and verse,
explanations, verses, spontaneous exclamations, quotations, birth stories,
amazing events, question & answer sessions — he wouldn’t be said to be one
with a sense of Dhamma. So it’s because he does know the Dhamma — dialogues…
question & answer sessions — that he is said to be one with a sense of Dhamma.
This is one with a sense of Dhamma.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of meaning? There is the case
where a monk knows the meaning of this & that statement — ‘This is the
meaning of that statement; that is the meaning of this.’ If he didn’t know the
meaning of this & that statement — ‘This is the meaning of that statement;
that is the meaning of this’ — he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of
meaning. So it’s because he does know the meaning of this & that statement
— ‘This is the meaning of that statement; that is the meaning of this’ — that
he is said to be one with a sense of meaning. This is one with a sense of
Dhamma & a sense of meaning.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of himself? There is the case
where a monk knows himself: ‘This is how far I have come in conviction, virtue,
learning, liberality, discernment, quick-wittedness.’ If he didn’t know himself
— ‘This is how far I have come in conviction, virtue, learning, liberality,
discernment, quick-wittedness’ — he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of
himself. So it’s because he does know himself — ‘This is how far I have come in
conviction, virtue, learning, liberality, discernment, quick-wittedness’ — that
he is said to be one with a sense of himself. This is one with a sense of
Dhamma, a sense of meaning, & a sense of himself.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of moderation?
There is the case where a monk knows moderation in accepting robes, almsfood,
lodgings, & medicinal requisites for curing the sick. If he didn’t know moderation
in accepting robes, almsfood, lodgings, & medicinal requisites for curing
the sick, he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of moderation. So it’s
because he does know moderation in accepting robes, almsfood, lodgings, &
medicinal requisites for curing the sick, that he is said to be one with a
sense of moderation. This is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, a
sense of himself, & a sense of moderation.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of time? There is the case
where a monk knows the time: ‘This is the time for recitation; this, the time
for questioning; this, the time for making an effort [in meditation]; this, the
time for seclusion.’ If he didn’t know the time — ‘This is the time for
recitation; this, the time for questioning; this, the time for making an
effort; this, the time for seclusion’ — he wouldn’t be said to be one with a
sense of time. So it’s because he does know the time — ‘This is the time for
recitation; this, the time for questioning; this, the time for making an effort;
this, the time for seclusion’ — that he is said to be one with a sense of time.
This is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, a sense of himself, a
sense of moderation, & a sense of time.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of social
gatherings
? There is the case where a monk knows his social gathering:
‘This is a social gathering of noble warriors; this, a social gathering of
priests; this, a social gathering of householders; this, a social gathering of
contemplatives; here one should approach them in this way, stand in this way,
act in this way, sit in this way, speak in this way, stay silent in this way.’
If he didn’t know his social gathering — ‘This is a social gathering of noble
warriors; this, a social gathering of priests; this, a social gathering of
householders; this, a social gathering of contemplatives; here one should
approach them in this way, stand in this way, act in this way, sit in this way,
speak in this way, stay silent in this way’ — he wouldn’t be said to be one
with a sense of social gatherings. So it’s because he does know his social
gathering — ‘This is a social gathering of noble warriors; this, a social
gathering of priests; this, a social gathering of householders; this, a social
gathering of contemplatives; here one should approach them in this way, stand
in this way, act in this way, sit in this way, speak in this way, stay silent
in this way’ — that he is said to be one with a sense of social gatherings.
This is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, a sense of himself, a
sense of moderation, a sense of time, & a sense of social gatherings.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of distinctions among
individuals? There is the case where people are known to a monk in terms of two
categories.

“Of two people — one who wants to see noble ones and one who
doesn’t — the one who doesn’t want to see noble ones is to be criticized for
that reason, the one who does want to see noble ones is, for that reason, to be
praised.

“Of two people who want to see noble ones — one who wants to hear
the true Dhamma and one who doesn’t — the one who doesn’t want to hear the true
Dhamma is to be criticized for that reason, the one who does want to hear the
true Dhamma is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who want to hear the true Dhamma — one who listens
with an attentive ear and one who listens without an attentive ear — the one
who listens without an attentive ear is to be criticized for that reason, the
one who listens with an attentive ear is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who listen with an attentive ear — one who, having
listened to the Dhamma, remembers it, and one who doesn’t — the one who, having
listened to the Dhamma, doesn’t remember it is to be criticized for that
reason, the one who, having listened to the Dhamma, does remember the Dhamma
is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who, having listened to the Dhamma, remember it —
one who explores the meaning of the Dhamma he has remembered and one who
doesn’t — the one who doesn’t explore the meaning of the Dhamma he has
remembered is to be criticized for that reason, the one who does explore the
meaning of the Dhamma he has remembered is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who explore the meaning of the Dhamma they have remembered
— one who practices the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, having a sense of
Dhamma, having a sense of meaning, and one who doesn’t — the one who doesn’t
practice the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, having a sense of Dhamma, having a
sense of meaning, is to be criticized for that reason, the one who does
practice the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, having a sense of Dhamma, having a
sense of meaning is, for that reason, to be praised.

Of two people who practice the Dhamma in line
with the Dhamma, having a sense of Dhamma, having a sense of meaning — one who
practices for both his own benefit and that of others, and one who practices
for his own benefit but not that of others — the one who practices for his own
benefit but not that of others is to be criticized for that reason, the one who
practices for both his own benefit and that of others is, for that reason, to
be praised.

“This is how people are known to a monk in terms of two categories.
And this is how a monk is one with a sense of distinctions among individuals.

“A monk endowed with these seven qualities is worthy of gifts,
worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings, worthy of respect, an unexcelled
field of merit for the world.”

http://sarvajan.ambedkar.org-
A large no. of BSP supporters gatherd at Freedom Park @ 11am on 21 Jun
2011  shouted slogans against the central
govt  responsible for increasing the
prices of essential commodities.

A large no. of BSP supporters gatherd at Freedom Park @ 11am on 21 Jun
2011  shouted slogans against the central
govt  responsible for increasing the
prices of essential commodities.

Supporters
kept pouring in through the day carrying blue party flags with Ms. Mayawati’s
pictures & placards against price rise.Leaders spoke to TV channels against price rise.

Aur ek antim geet
behen Mayawati ji kay charnon mein arpit
[And one last song to be offered at
sister Mayawati’s feet],”
& songs on the movement were sung by youths.

Dr.Ashok Siddharth MLC In-charge Kar.BSP lambasted UPA’s finance policies. He accused
the United
Progressive Alliance govt of furthering the interests of the
corporate sector.


Dr Ashok also said that all political parties, except the BSP, relied on
contributions from corporate houses for their election expenses.Kar BSP President Marasandra Muniappa presided.


Dr Ashok said During the worst ever recession in 2008-09 the central
govt doled out a subsidy package of Rs.4 lakh crore to the corporate sector,
which continued even in 2009-10

When the
country’s economic growth registered an increase to 6.8 percent, doled out  subsidy package of Rs.4 lakh crore to the
corporate sector continued Dr.Ashok alleged.

When the growth has further gone up to 8%, the union govt
has made a provision of Rs.4.5 lakh crore worth of subsidies to the corporate
sector, which shows where the interest is.

If the
govt had least concern for the common people, its leaders would have kept a
fraction of that whopping subsidy for petrol products to help lessen the
pressures.

Mayawati  told her party men to make it a point to
apprise the people of the measures taken by her govt to cut down the state
levies on  petroleum products.

caste but I want to make it clear that we believe in sarvajan
hitaya[welfare of all]

have done nothing for you in the over 60 years of Independence, said
Ms.Mayawati.

During the worst ever recession in 2008-09 the central
govt doled out a subsidy package of Rs.4 lakh crore to the corporate sector,
which continued even in 2009-10

When the
country’s economic growth registered an increase to 6.8 percent, doled out  subsidy package of Rs.4 lakh crore to the

UP Chief Minister Mayawati said the Congress believes in
anti common man and anti development policies.

UP CM Ms Mayawati accused Congress of adopting a dual
face towards the people hailing from financially weak background.

The UP CM said, “On one end, Congress reflects sympathy
for poor but on ground reality it has done nothing to uplift the living
standards of people belonging to financially weak background.”

 “The Centre is
concerned about the financial deficits faced oil companies but it is least
bothered about the problems faced by the common man due to the repeated hike in
petrol prices.

The UPA move reflects the flaws in the financial policies
of the Union Government. The Centre failed to check the skyrocketing inflation.

“It has increased the petrol price 12 times since April,
2008.” As a result, the price of petrol has increased from Rs 48.30 in 2008 to
more than Rs 71 per litre in 2011.

making lives of common people “even more miserable”.

Dhamma-viharin Sutta: One Who Dwells in the Dhamma

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 2003–2011

Then a certain monk went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, sat to one side. As he was sitting there he said to the Blessed One, “‘One who dwells in the Dhamma, one who dwells in the Dhamma’: thus it is said, lord. To what extent is a bhikkhu one who dwells in the Dhamma?”

“Monk, there is the case where a monk studies the Dhamma: dialogues, narratives of mixed prose and verse, explanations, verses, spontaneous exclamations, quotations, birth stories, amazing events, question & answer sessions.[1] He spends the day in Dhamma-study. He neglects seclusion. He doesn’t commit himself to internal tranquillity of awareness. This is called a monk who is keen on study, not one who dwells in the Dhamma.

“Then there is the case where a monk takes the Dhamma as he has heard & studied it and teaches it in full detail to others. He spends the day in Dhamma-description. He neglects seclusion. He doesn’t commit himself to internal tranquillity of awareness. This is called a monk who is keen on description, not one who dwells in the Dhamma.

“Then there is the case where a monk takes the Dhamma as he has heard & studied it and recites it in full detail. He spends the day in Dhamma-recitation. He neglects seclusion. He doesn’t commit himself to internal tranquillity of awareness. This is called a monk who is keen on recitation, not one who dwells in the Dhamma.

“Then there is the case where a monk takes the Dhamma as he has heard & studied it and thinks about it, evaluates it, and examines it with his intellect. He spends the day in Dhamma-thinking. He neglects seclusion. He doesn’t commit himself to internal tranquillity of awareness. This is called a monk who is keen on thinking, not one who dwells in the Dhamma.

“Then there is the case where a monk studies the Dhamma: dialogues, narratives of mixed prose and verse, explanations, verses, spontaneous exclamations, quotations, birth stories, amazing events, question & answer sessions. He doesn’t spend the day in Dhamma-study. He doesn’t neglect seclusion. He commits himself to internal tranquillity of awareness. This is called a monk who dwells in the Dhamma.

“Now, monk, I have taught you the person who is keen on study, the one who is keen on description, the one who is keen on recitation, the one who is keen on thinking, and the one who dwells in the Dhamma. Whatever a teacher should do — seeking the welfare of his disciples, out of sympathy for them — that have I done for you. Over there are the roots of trees; over there, empty dwellings. Practice jhana, monk. Don’t be heedless. Don’t later fall into regret. This is our message to you.”

Dhammaññu Sutta: One With a Sense of Dhamma

translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1997–2011

A monk endowed with these seven qualities is worthy of gifts, worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings, worthy of respect, an unexcelled field of merit for the world. Which seven? There is the case where a monk is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, a sense of himself, a sense of moderation, a sense of time, a sense of social gatherings, & a sense of distinctions among individuals.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of Dhamma? There is the case where a monk knows the Dhamma: dialogues, narratives of mixed prose and verse, explanations, verses, spontaneous exclamations, quotations, birth stories, amazing events, question & answer sessions.[1] If he didn’t know the Dhamma — dialogues, narratives of mixed prose and verse, explanations, verses, spontaneous exclamations, quotations, birth stories, amazing events, question & answer sessions — he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of Dhamma. So it’s because he does know the Dhamma — dialogues… question & answer sessions — that he is said to be one with a sense of Dhamma. This is one with a sense of Dhamma.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of meaning? There is the case where a monk knows the meaning of this & that statement — ‘This is the meaning of that statement; that is the meaning of this.’ If he didn’t know the meaning of this & that statement — ‘This is the meaning of that statement; that is the meaning of this’ — he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of meaning. So it’s because he does know the meaning of this & that statement — ‘This is the meaning of that statement; that is the meaning of this’ — that he is said to be one with a sense of meaning. This is one with a sense of Dhamma & a sense of meaning.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of himself? There is the case where a monk knows himself: ‘This is how far I have come in conviction, virtue, learning, liberality, discernment, quick-wittedness.’ If he didn’t know himself — ‘This is how far I have come in conviction, virtue, learning, liberality, discernment, quick-wittedness’ — he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of himself. So it’s because he does know himself — ‘This is how far I have come in conviction, virtue, learning, liberality, discernment, quick-wittedness’ — that he is said to be one with a sense of himself. This is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, & a sense of himself.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of moderation? There is the case where a monk knows moderation in accepting robes, almsfood, lodgings, & medicinal requisites for curing the sick. If he didn’t know moderation in accepting robes, almsfood, lodgings, & medicinal requisites for curing the sick, he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of moderation. So it’s because he does know moderation in accepting robes, almsfood, lodgings, & medicinal requisites for curing the sick, that he is said to be one with a sense of moderation. This is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, a sense of himself, & a sense of moderation.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of time? There is the case where a monk knows the time: ‘This is the time for recitation; this, the time for questioning; this, the time for making an effort [in meditation]; this, the time for seclusion.’ If he didn’t know the time — ‘This is the time for recitation; this, the time for questioning; this, the time for making an effort; this, the time for seclusion’ — he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of time. So it’s because he does know the time — ‘This is the time for recitation; this, the time for questioning; this, the time for making an effort; this, the time for seclusion’ — that he is said to be one with a sense of time. This is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, a sense of himself, a sense of moderation, & a sense of time.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of social gatherings? There is the case where a monk knows his social gathering: ‘This is a social gathering of noble warriors; this, a social gathering of priests; this, a social gathering of householders; this, a social gathering of contemplatives; here one should approach them in this way, stand in this way, act in this way, sit in this way, speak in this way, stay silent in this way.’ If he didn’t know his social gathering — ‘This is a social gathering of noble warriors; this, a social gathering of priests; this, a social gathering of householders; this, a social gathering of contemplatives; here one should approach them in this way, stand in this way, act in this way, sit in this way, speak in this way, stay silent in this way’ — he wouldn’t be said to be one with a sense of social gatherings. So it’s because he does know his social gathering — ‘This is a social gathering of noble warriors; this, a social gathering of priests; this, a social gathering of householders; this, a social gathering of contemplatives; here one should approach them in this way, stand in this way, act in this way, sit in this way, speak in this way, stay silent in this way’ — that he is said to be one with a sense of social gatherings. This is one with a sense of Dhamma, a sense of meaning, a sense of himself, a sense of moderation, a sense of time, & a sense of social gatherings.

“And how is a monk one with a sense of distinctions among individuals? There is the case where people are known to a monk in terms of two categories.

“Of two people — one who wants to see noble ones and one who doesn’t — the one who doesn’t want to see noble ones is to be criticized for that reason, the one who does want to see noble ones is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who want to see noble ones — one who wants to hear the true Dhamma and one who doesn’t — the one who doesn’t want to hear the true Dhamma is to be criticized for that reason, the one who does want to hear the true Dhamma is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who want to hear the true Dhamma — one who listens with an attentive ear and one who listens without an attentive ear — the one who listens without an attentive ear is to be criticized for that reason, the one who listens with an attentive ear is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who listen with an attentive ear — one who, having listened to the Dhamma, remembers it, and one who doesn’t — the one who, having listened to the Dhamma, doesn’t remember it is to be criticized for that reason, the one who, having listened to the Dhamma, does remember the Dhamma is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who, having listened to the Dhamma, remember it — one who explores the meaning of the Dhamma he has remembered and one who doesn’t — the one who doesn’t explore the meaning of the Dhamma he has remembered is to be criticized for that reason, the one who does explore the meaning of the Dhamma he has remembered is, for that reason, to be praised.

“Of two people who explore the meaning of the Dhamma they have remembered — one who practices the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, having a sense of Dhamma, having a sense of meaning, and one who doesn’t — the one who doesn’t practice the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, having a sense of Dhamma, having a sense of meaning, is to be criticized for that reason, the one who does practice the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, having a sense of Dhamma, having a sense of meaning is, for that reason, to be praised.

Of two people who practice the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, having a sense of Dhamma, having a sense of meaning — one who practices for both his own benefit and that of others, and one who practices for his own benefit but not that of others — the one who practices for his own benefit but not that of others is to be criticized for that reason, the one who practices for both his own benefit and that of others is, for that reason, to be praised.

“This is how people are known to a monk in terms of two categories. And this is how a monk is one with a sense of distinctions among individuals.

“A monk endowed with these seven qualities is worthy of gifts, worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings, worthy of respect, an unexcelled field of merit for the world.”
