Practice a Sutta a Day
Keeps Dukkha Away

Dr
Ambedkar wanted SC/STs grow like banian tree,with a tremendous capacity to
regenerate,giving cool shade to needy, but never wanted SC/STs to become
ornamental shrubs (planted in Gamlas left at the mercy of owner for water and
sun light) with out roots in the fore courts of congress. It never can think of
an accidental banian seed sprouting in the heart lands of Indian polity.
Fortunately Ambedkar’s relentless fights, efforts and dreams has seen thelight
of the day in UP. Let’s sing and rejoice glory of our fore fathers. Jai Bheem!
Jai Kanshiram!

The
Story of Suppabuddha, the Leper

While
residing at the Jetavana monastery, the Buddha uttered Verse (66) of this book,
with reference to Suppabuddha, a leper.

Suppabuddha,
the leper, while sitting at the back of the crowd and listening attentively to
the discourse given by the Buddha, attained Sotapatti Fruition. When the crowd
had dispersed, he followed the Buddha to the monastery as he wished to tell the
Buddha about his attainment of Sotapatti Fruition. Sakka, king of the devas,
wishing to test the leper’s faith in the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Samgha, appeared
to him and said, “You are only a poor man, living on what you get by
begging, with no one to fall back on. I can give you immense wealth if you deny
the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Samgha and say that you have no use for
them.” To this, Suppabuddha replied. “I am certainly not a poor man,
with no one to rely on. I am a rich man; I possess the seven attributes which
the ariyas possess; I have faith (saddha), morality (sila), sense of shame to
do evil (hiri), sense of fear to do evil (ottappa), learning (sula), generosity
(caga) and knowledge (panna).

Then,
Sakka went to the Buddha ahead of Suppabuddha and related the conversation
between himself and Suppabuddha. To him the Buddha replied that it would not be
easy even for a hundred or a thousand Sakkas to coax Suppabuddha away from the
Buddha, the Dhamma and the Samgha. Soon after this, Suppabuddha arrived at the
monastery and reported to the Buddha about his attainment of Sotapatti
Fruition. On his way back from the Jetavana monastery, Suppabuddha was gored to
death by an infuriated cow, who, in fact, was an ogress assuming the form of a
cow. This ogress was none other than the prostitute who was killed by
Suppabuddha in one of his previous existences and who had vowed to have her
revenge on him.

When
the news of Suppabuddha’s death reached the Jetavana monastery, the bhikkhus
asked the Buddha where Suppabuddha was reborn and the Buddha replied to them
that Suppabuddha was reborn in Tavatimsa deva realm. The Buddha also explained
to them that Suppabuddha was born a leper because, in one of his previous
existences, he had spat upon a paccekabuddha.

Then
the Buddha spoke in verse as follows:

Verse
66: With themselves as their own enemies, fools lacking in intelligence, move
about doing evil deeds, which bear bitter fruits.
