Verse 81. The Wise Are Steadfast

Just as a mighty boulder
stirs not with the wind,
so the wise are never moved
either by praise or blame.

Explanation: The wise remain unmoved and
unruffled both by praise and humiliation. The wise remain unshaken under all
vicissitudes of life, like the solid rock that withstands the buffetings of
wind, unmoved.

Dhammapada Verse 81
Lakundakabhaddiyatthera Vatthu

Selo yatha ekaghano
vatena na samirati
evam nindapasamsasu
na saminjanti pandita

Verse 81: As a mountain of rock is unshaken by
wind, so also, the wise are unperturbed by blame or by praise.


The Story of Thera Lakundaka Bhaddiya

While residing at the Jetavana monastery, the
Buddha uttered Verse (81) of this book, with reference to Thera Bhaddiya.

Bhaddiya was one of the bhikkhus staying at
the Jetavana monastery. Because of his short stature he was known as Lakundaka
(the dwarf) to other bhikkhus. Lakundaka Bhaddiya was very good natured; even
young bhikkhus would often tease him by pulling his nose or his ear, or by
patting him on his head. Very often they would jokingly say, “Uncle, how
are you? Are you happy, or are you bored with your life here as a
bhikkhu?”, etc. Lakundaka Bhaddiya never retaliated in anger, or abused
them; in fact, even in his heart he did not get angry with them.

When told about the patience of Lakundaka
Bhaddiya, the Buddha said, “An arahat never loses his temper, he has no
desire to speak harshly or to think ill of others. He is like a mountain of
solid rock; as a solid rock is unshaken, so also, an arahat is unperturbed by
scorn or by praise.”

Then the Buddha spoke in verse as follows:


Verse 81: As a mountain of rock is unshaken by wind, so also,
the wise are unperturbed by blame or by praise.
