Pañhapuccha Sutta: On
Asking Questions

translated from the Pali
by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 2004–2011

Then Ven. Sariputta addressed the monks: “Friend
monks.”

“Yes, friend,” the monks responded to him.

Ven. Sariputta said: “All those who ask questions of
another do so from any one of five motivations. Which five?

“One asks a question of another through stupidity &
bewilderment. One asks a question of another through evil desires &
overwhelmed with greed. One asks a question of another through contempt. One
asks a question of another when desiring knowledge. Or one asks a question with
this thought,[1]

‘If, when asked, he answers correctly, well & good. If not, then I will
answer correctly [for him].’

“All those who ask questions of another do so from any one
of these five motivations. And as for me, when I ask a question of another,
it’s with this thought: ‘If, when asked, he answers correctly, well & good.
If not, then I will answer correctly [for him].’

The Fourfold Reflection of a Monk

(Paccavekkhana [1])

1. Wisely reflecting do I
wear the robe, only in order to

protect myself from cold,
heat, gadflies, mosquitoes, wind,

88

and sun and from snakes; and
also as a constant covering

for my modesty.

2. Wisely reflecting I will
partake of food not for pleasure

of it, not for the pride
(resulting from physical strength

obtainable), not for
adornment, not for beautifying the

body, but merely to maintain
this body, to still the hunger,

and to enable the practice of
the holy life; also to resist the

pangs of hunger (due to
previous want of food), and to

resist the pain (resulting
from excess of food). Thus will

my life be maintained free
from wrong doing and free from

discomfort.

3. Wisely reflecting I will
make use of lodgings only in

order to rotect myself from
cold and heat, from gadflies

and mosquitoes; from wind and
sun, from snakes, and also

as a constant protection
against the rigours of climate, and

in order to realize that
ardent desire for seclusion (which

begets mental concentration).

4. Wisely reflecting I will
make use of medicine only as an

aid to eliminate bodily pains
that have arisen, and also to

maintain that important
condition, freedom from disease.

Aggi-Vacchagotta Sutta:
To Vacchagotta on Fire

translated from the Pali
by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 1997–2011

I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying in
Savatthi, at Jeta’s Grove, Anathapindika’s
monastery
. Then the wanderer Vacchagotta went to
the Blessed One and, on arrival, exchanged courteous greetings with him. After
an exchange of friendly greetings & courtesies, he sat to one side. As he
was sitting there he asked the Blessed One: “How is it, Master Gotama,
does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘The cosmos is eternal: only this is true,
anything otherwise is worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘The cosmos is not
eternal: only this is true, anything otherwise is worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘The cosmos is
finite: only this is true, anything otherwise is worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘The cosmos is
infinite: only this is true, anything otherwise is worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘The soul & the
body are the same: only this is true, anything otherwise is worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘The soul is one
thing and the body another: only this is true, anything otherwise is
worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘After death a
Tathagata exists: only this is true, anything otherwise is worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘After death a
Tathagata does not exist: only this is true, anything otherwise is
worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘After death a
Tathagata both exists & does not exist: only this is true, anything
otherwise is worthless’?”

“…no…”

“Then does Master Gotama hold the view: ‘After death a Tathagata
neither exists nor does not exist: only this is true, anything otherwise is
worthless’?”

“…no…”

“How is it, Master Gotama, when Master Gotama is asked if
he holds the view ‘the cosmos is eternal…’… ‘after death a Tathagata
neither exists nor does not exist: only this is true, anything otherwise is
worthless,’ he says ‘…no…’ in each case. Seeing what drawback, then, is
Master Gotama thus entirely dissociated from each of these ten positions?”

Vaccha, the position that ‘the cosmos
is eternal’ is a thicket of views, a wilderness of views, a contortion of
views, a writhing of views, a fetter of views. It is accompanied by suffering,
distress, despair, & fever, and it does not lead to disenchantment,
dispassion, cessation; to calm, direct knowledge, full Awakening, Unbinding.

“The position that ‘the cosmos is not eternal’…

“…’the cosmos is finite’…

“…’the cosmos is infinite’…

“…’the soul & the body are the same’…

“…’the soul is one thing and the body another’…

“…’after death a Tathagata exists’…

“…’after death a Tathagata does not exist’…

“…’after death a Tathagata both exists & does not
exist’…

“…’after death a Tathagata neither exists nor does not
exist’… does not lead to disenchantment, dispassion, cessation; to calm,
direct knowledge, full Awakening, Unbinding.”

“Does Master Gotama have any position at all?”

“A ‘position,’ Vaccha, is something that a Tathagata has
done away with. What a Tathagata sees is this: ‘Such is form, such its origin,
such its disappearance; such is feeling, such its origin, such its
disappearance; such is perception… such are mental fabrications… such is
consciousness, such its origin, such its disappearance.’ Because of this, I
say, a Tathagata — with the ending, fading out, cessation, renunciation, &
relinquishment of all construings, all excogitations, all I-making &
mine-making & obsession with conceit — is, through lack of
clinging/sustenance, released.”

“But, Master Gotama, the monk whose mind is thus released:
Where does he reappear?”

“‘Reappear,’ Vaccha, doesn’t apply.”

“In that case, Master Gotama, he does not reappear.”

“‘Does not reappear,’ Vaccha, doesn’t apply.”

“…both does & does not reappear.”

“…doesn’t apply.”

“…neither does nor does not reappear.”

“…doesn’t apply.”

“How is it, Master Gotama, when Master Gotama is asked if
the monk reappears… does not reappear… both does & does not reappear…
neither does nor does not reappear, he says, ‘…doesn’t apply’ in each case.
At this point, Master Gotama, I am befuddled; at this point, confused. The
modicum of clarity coming to me from your earlier conversation is now
obscured.”

“Of course you’re befuddled, Vaccha. Of course you’re
confused. Deep, Vaccha, is this phenomenon, hard to see, hard to realize, tranquil,
refined, beyond the scope of conjecture, subtle, to-be-experienced by the wise.
For those with other views, other practices, other satisfactions, other aims,
other teachers, it is difficult to know. That being the case, I will now put
some questions to you. Answer as you see fit. What do you
think, Vaccha: If a fire were burning in front of you, would you know that,
‘This fire is burning in front of me’?”

“…yes…”

“And suppose someone were to ask you, Vaccha, ‘This fire
burning in front of you, dependent on what is it burning?’ Thus asked, how
would you reply?”

“…I would reply, ‘This fire burning in front of me is
burning dependent on grass & timber as its sustenance.’”

“If the fire burning in front of you were to go out, would
you know that, ‘This fire burning in front of me has gone out’?”

“…yes…”

“And suppose someone were to ask you, ‘This fire that has
gone out in front of you, in which direction from here has it gone? East? West?
North? Or south?’ Thus asked, how would you reply?”

“That doesn’t apply, Master Gotama. Any fire burning
dependent on a sustenance of grass and timber, being unnourished — from having
consumed that sustenance and not being offered any other — is classified simply
as ‘out’ (unbound).”

“Even so, Vaccha, any physical form by which one describing
the Tathagata would describe him: That the Tathagata has abandoned, its root
destroyed, made like a palmyra stump, deprived of the conditions of
development, not destined for future arising. Freed from the classification of
form, Vaccha, the Tathagata is deep, boundless, hard to fathom, like the sea.
‘Reappears’ doesn’t apply. ‘Does not reappear’ doesn’t apply. ‘Both does &
does not reappear’ doesn’t apply. ‘Neither reappears nor does not reappear’
doesn’t apply.

“Any feeling… Any perception… Any mental fabrication…

“Any consciousness by which one describing the Tathagata
would describe him: That the Tathagata has abandoned, its root destroyed, made
like a palmyra stump, deprived of the conditions of development, not destined
for future arising. Freed from the classification of consciousness, Vaccha, the
Tathagata is deep, boundless, hard to fathom, like the sea. ‘Reappears’ doesn’t
apply. ‘Does not reappear’ doesn’t apply. ‘Both does & does not reappear’
doesn’t apply. ‘Neither reappears nor does not reappear’ doesn’t apply.”

When this was said, the wanderer Vacchagotta said to the Blessed
One: “Master Gotama, it is as if there were a great sala tree not far from
a village or town: From inconstancy, its branches and leaves would wear away,
its bark would wear away, its sapwood would wear away, so that on a later
occasion — divested of branches, leaves, bark, & sapwood — it would stand
as pure heartwood. In the same way, Master Gotama’s words are divested of branches,
leaves, bark, & sapwood and stand as pure heartwood.

“Magnificent,
Master Gotama! Magnificent! Just as if he were to place upright what was
overturned, to reveal what was hidden, to show the way to one who was lost, or
were to carry a lamp into the dark so that those with eyes could see forms, in
the same way has Master Gotama — through many lines of reasoning — made the
Dhamma clear. I go to Master Gotama for refuge, to the Dhamma, and to the
Sangha of monks. May Master Gotama remember me as a lay follower who has gone
to him for refuge, from this day forward, for life.”

Kathavatthu Sutta:
Topics for Discussion

translated from the Pali
by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 2005–2011

“Monks, there are these three topics for discussion. Which
three?

“One may talk about the past, saying, ‘Thus it was in the
past.’ One may talk about the future, saying, ‘Thus it will be in the future.’
Or one may talk about now in the present, saying, ‘Thus it is now in the
present.’

“Monks, it’s through his way of participating in a
discussion that a person can be known as fit to talk with or unfit to talk
with. If a person, when asked a question, doesn’t give a categorical answer to
a question deserving a categorical answer, doesn’t give an analytical
(qualified) answer to a question deserving an analytical answer, doesn’t give a
counter-question to a question deserving a counter-question, doesn’t put aside
a question deserving to be put aside, then — that being the case — he is a
person unfit to talk with. But if a person, when asked a question, gives a
categorical answer to a question deserving a categorical answer, gives an
analytical answer to a question deserving an analytical answer, gives a
counter-question to a question deserving a counter-question, and puts aside a
question deserving to be put aside, then — that being the case — he is a person
fit to talk with.

“Monks, it’s through his way of participating in a
discussion that a person can be known as fit to talk with or unfit to talk with.
If a person, when asked a question, doesn’t stand by what is possible and
impossible, doesn’t stand by agreed-upon assumptions, doesn’t stand by
teachings known to be true,[1]

doesn’t stand by standard procedure, then — that being the case — he is a
person unfit to talk with. But if a person, when asked a question, stands by
what is possible and impossible, stands by agreed-upon assumptions, stands by
teachings known to be true, stands by standard procedure, then — that being the
case — he is a person fit to talk with.

“Monks, it’s through his way of participating in a
discussion that a person can be known as fit to talk with or unfit to talk
with. If a person, when asked a question, wanders from one thing to another,
pulls the discussion off the topic, shows anger & aversion and sulks, then
— that being the case — he is a person unfit to talk with. But if a person,
when asked a question, doesn’t wander from one thing to another, doesn’t pull
the discussion off the topic, doesn’t show anger or aversion or sulk, then —
that being the case — he is a person fit to talk with.

“Monks, it’s through his way of participating in a
discussion that a person can be known as fit to talk with or unfit to talk
with. If a person, when asked a question, puts down [the questioner], crushes
him, ridicules him, grasps at his little mistakes, then — that being the case —
he is a person unfit to talk with. But if a person, when asked a question,
doesn’t put down [the questioner], doesn’t crush him, doesn’t ridicule him,
doesn’t grasp at his little mistakes, then — that being the case — he is a
person fit to talk with.

“Monks, it’s through his way of participating in a
discussion that a person can be known as drawing near or not drawing near. One
who lends ear draws near; one who doesn’t lend ear doesn’t draw near. Drawing
near, one clearly knows one quality, comprehends one quality, abandons one
quality, and realizes one quality.[2]

Clearly knowing one quality, comprehending one quality, abandoning one quality,
and realizing one quality, one touches right release. For that’s the purpose of
discussion, that’s the purpose of counsel, that’s the purpose of drawing near,
that’s the purpose of lending ear: i.e., the liberation of the mind through no
clinging.

Those who discuss when
angered, dogmatic, arrogant, following what’s not the noble ones’ way, seeking
to expose each other’s faults, delight in each other’s misspoken word, slip,
stumble, defeat. Noble ones don’t speak in that way. If wise people, knowing
the right time, want to speak, then, words connected with justice, following
the ways of the noble ones: That’s what the enlightened ones speak, without
anger or arrogance, with a mind not boiling over, without vehemence, without
spite. Without envy they speak from right knowledge. They would delight in
what’s well-said and not disparage what’s not. They don’t study to find fault,
don’t grasp at little mistakes. don’t put down, don’t crush, don’t speak random
words. For the purpose of knowledge, for the purpose of [inspiring] clear
confidence, counsel that’s true: That’s how noble ones give counsel, That’s the
noble ones’ counsel. Knowing this, the wise should give counsel without arrogance.”

The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Ms.
Mayawati ji, has directed the officers to carry out rescue and relief works in
flood affected areas on war footing and provide all possible help to the
affected people at the earliest. She directed the officers of flood affected
districts to keep an eye on the flood situation continuously. She had taken
decision to conduct tour of the entire state after August 15, but owing to bad
weather and rainy conditions the Hon’ble Chief Minister ji would now conduct

flood affected districts to ensure effective implementation of rescue and
relief works. It may be recalled that the Cabinet Secretary Mr. Shashank
Shekhar Singh and Chief Secretary Mr. Anoop Mishra had requested the Hon’ble
Chief Minister ji to postpone her state tour considering flood situation in
some parts of the state.


 


The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji directed the
officers to strengthen the law and order of the state and accelerate the pace
