Kandarayana Sutta: To
Kandarayana

translated from the Pali
by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

© 2006–2011

On one occasion Ven. Maha Kaccana was
staying at Madhura in the Gunda Forest.
Then Kandarayana the brahman went to Ven. Maha Kaccana 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 said to Ven. Maha
Kaccana, “I have heard it said, Master Kaccana, that, ‘Kaccana the
contemplative does not raise his hands in respect to aged, venerable brahmans —
advanced in years, come to the last stage of life — nor does he rise up to
greet them, nor does he offer them a seat.’ Insofar as you don’t raise your
hands in respect to aged, venerable brahmans — advanced in years, come to the
last stage of life — nor rise up to greet them, nor offer them a seat, that is
simply not right, Master Kaccana.”

“Brahman, the Blessed One — the one who knows, the one who
sees, worthy & rightly self-awakened — has declared the level of one who is
venerable and the level of one who is a youngster. Even if one is venerable —
80, 90, 100 years old — yet if one partakes of sensuality, lives in the midst
of sensuality, burns with sensual fever, is chewed up by sensual thoughts, and
is eager in the search for sensuality, then one is reckoned simply as a young
fool, not an elder.

“But if one is a youngster, youthful — a black-haired young
person endowed with the blessings of youth in the first stage of life — yet
does not partake of sensuality, does not live in the midst of sensuality, does
not burn with sensual fever, is not chewed up by sensual thoughts, and is not
eager in the search for sensuality, then one is reckoned as a wise elder.”

When this was said, Kandarayana the brahman rose up from his
seat, arranged his cloak over one shoulder, and bowed down at the feet of the
monks who were youngsters, [saying,] “You, sirs, are the venerable ones,
standing on the level of those who are venerable. We are the youngsters,
standing on the level of those who are youngsters.


“Magnificent, Master Kaccana! 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 to carry a lamp into the dark so that those
with eyes could see forms, in the same way has Master Kaccana — through many
lines of reasoning — made the Dhamma clear. I go to Master Gotama for refuge,
to the Dhamma, & to the community of monks. May Master Kaccana remember me
as a lay follower who has gone for refuge from this day forward, for
life.”
