Puna ca·paraṃ, bhikkhave, bhikkhu imam·eva kāyaṃ yathā·ṭhitaṃ yathā·paṇihitaṃ dhātuso paccavekkhati: ‘Atthi imasmiṃ kāye pathavī·dhātu āpo·dhātū tejo·dhātū vāyo·dhātūti.

E. Section on the Elements



Furthermore, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu reflects on this very kāya, however it is placed, however it is disposed: “In this kāya, there is the earth element, the water element, the fire element and the air element.”

Seyyathāpi, bhikkhave, dakkho goghātako goghātak·antevāsī gāviṃ vadhitvā catu·mahā·pathe bilaso vibhajitvā nisinno assa; evameva kho, bhikkhave, bhikkhu imam·eva kāyaṃ yathā·ṭhitaṃ yathā·paṇihitaṃ dhātuso paccavekkhati: ‘Atthi imasmiṃ kāye pathavī·dhātu āpo·dhātū tejo·dhātū vāyo·dhātūti.


Just as, bhikkhus, a skillful butcher or a butcher’s apprentice, having
killed a cow, would sit at a crossroads cutting it into pieces; in the
same way, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu reflects on this very kāya, however it is placed, however it is disposed: “In this kāya, there is the earth element, the water element, the fire element and the air element.”

Iti ajjhattaṃ kāye kāyānupassī viharati, bahiddhā kāye kāyānupassī viharati, ajjhatta-bahiddhā kāye kāyānupassī viharati; samudaya-dhamm·ānupassī kāyasmiṃ viharati, vaya-dhamm·ānupassī kāyasmiṃ viharati, samudaya-vaya-dhamm·ānupassī kāyasmiṃ viharati; ‘atthi kāyoti pan·assa sati paccupaṭṭhitā hoti, yāvadeva ñāṇa·mattāya paṭissati·mattāya, a·nissito ca viharati, na ca kiñci loke upādiyati. Evam·pi kho, bhikkhave, bhikkhu kāye kāyānupassī viharati.


Thus he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya externally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally and externally; he dwells observing the samudaya of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the passing away of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the samudaya and passing away of phenomena in kāya; or else, [realizing:] “this is kāya!” sati is present in him, just to the extent of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling to anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya.

Verse 268. Silence Alone Does Not Make A Sage

By silence one is not a sage
if confused and foolish,
but one who’s wise, as if with scales
weighs, adopts what’s good.

Explanation: The ignorant person, possessing foolish ways
and seemingly bewildered, may practice silence - the austerities of
the munis. But this does not make him a sage. But the wise person,
like someone holding scales, weighs good and bad and selects what
is noble.

Verse 269. Only True Wisdom Makes a Sage

Shunning evil utterly
one is a sage, by that a sage.
Whoever both worlds knows
for that one’s called a ‘Sage’.

Explanation: Weighing what is right and wrong, he shuns evil.
For he is a sage (muni). He is capable of weighing both worlds through
his sagely wisdom.

Dhammapada Verses 268 and 269
Titthiya Vatthu

Na monena muni hotimulharupo aviddasu
yo ca tulamva paggayha
varama
1 daya pandito.

Papani parivajjeti
sa muni tena so muni
yo munati ubho loke
2
“muni” tena pavuccati.

Verses 268 & 269: Not by silence does one become a muni, if one is
dull and ignorant. Like one holding a pair of scales, the wise one takes what is
good and rejects what is evil. For this reason he is a muni. He who
understands both internal and external aggregates is also, for that reason,
called a muni.



1. varam: the best, the good, the noble. In this context, it
means morality (sila), concentration (samadhi) and knowledge (panna), etc. (The
Commentary)

2. ubho loke: lit., both worlds, meaning internal and external
aggregates, or one’s own aggregates as well as those of others.


The Story of the Followers of Non-Buddhist Doctrines

While residing at the Jetavana monastery, the Buddha uttered Verses (268) and
(269) of this book, with reference to some non-Buddhist ascetics.

To those who offered them food or other things, those ascetics would say
words of blessing. They would say, “May you be free from danger, may you
prosper and get rich, may you live long,” etc. At that time, the followers
of the Buddha did not say anything after receiving something from their
lay-disciples. This was because during the first twenty years after the Buddha’s
attainment of Buddhahood they were instructed to remain silent on receiving
offerings. Since the followers of the Buddha were silent when ascetics of other
doctrines were saying things which were pleasing to their disciples, people
began to compare the two groups.

When the Buddha heard about this, he permitted the bhikkhus to say words of
blessing to their disciples after receiving offerings. As a result of that, more
and more people invited the followers of the Buddha for alms. Then, the ascetics
of other doctrines remarked with disdain: “We adhere to the practice of the
muni and keep silent, whereas the followers of Samana Gotama go about talking
exuberantly in the eating places.” On hearing those disparaging remarks,
the Buddha said, “Bhikkhus! There are some who keep silent because they
are ignorant and timid, and some who keep silent because they do not want to
share their profound knowledge with others. Only one who has overcome evil is to
be called a muni.”

Wat Carolina Buddhajakra Vanaram is a Thai Buddhist Monastery. It is located near Bolivia, North Carolina (or about 20 miles (32 km) west of Wilmington, North Carolina). The Wat Carolina Monastery is under the leadership of Abbot Phrakru Buddamonpricha.

The shrine in the main temple building. Detail of two of the Buddha statues in the main temple near Wilmington, NC

The architecture is more what one would expect to see in Thailand or India rather than southern North Carolina. Another view of the Wat Carolina temple, about 2 hours north of Myrtle Beach, SC

The different roof levels are interesting: Buddhist Association of North Carolina Several statues of the Buddha featured on the shrine in the teaching area in the monk's quarters.

A candle burns in front of the shrine.
