Vaishali

Located near Patna, the capital of the Indian state of Bihar,
Vaishali possesses an incredibly rich past in the history of Buddhism.
Vaishali is one of The Eight Great Places that were either identified
specifically by the Buddha (Lumbini, Bodh Gaya, Sarnath, Kusinara) or
are places where a certain miraculous event is reported to have
occurred. Sravasti was the Place of the Twin Miracle, and also the place
where the Buddha spent the largest amount of time, being a major city
in ancient India. Rajgir, another major city in India, was the Place of
the subduing of Nalagiri, the angry elephant, through friendliness.
Sankasia was the Place of the descending to earth from Tusita heaven
(after a stay of 3 months teaching his mother the Abhidhamma). And
Vaishali was the Place of receiving an offering of honey from a monkey.
Vaishali was the capital of the Vajjian Republic of ancient India.

For Buddhist women, Vaishali is twice notable. First Lord Buddha
ordained the first woman, his stepmother and aunt, Mahaprajapati, at
Vaishali. Second he delivered his last sermon at Vaishali and announced
his Parinirvana there. Vaishali was also the venue for the second
Buddhist Council a hundred years after his demise.

There is additional information about Vaishali and its Buddhist history on the Wikipedia page.

Upasaka









Verse 363. The Ideal Monk

Whatever bhikkhu tongue-controlled
speaks wisely and who is not proud,
who theory and practice can expound,
sweet as honey is his speech.

Explanation: The monk who controls his speech, who speaks
wisely with his mind composed, who explains the meaning of the Dhamma
- sweet are the words of that monk.




Dhammapada Verse 363
Kokalika Vatthu

Yo mukhasamyato bhikkhu
mantabhani anuddhato
attham dhammanca dipeti
madhuram tassa bhasitam.

Verse 363: The bhikkhu who controls his mouth
(speech) who speaks wisely with his mind composed, who explains the meaning and
the text of the Dhamma, — sweet are the words of that bhikkhu.


The Story of Bhikkhu Kokalika

While residing at the Jetavana
monastery, the Buddha uttered Verse (363) of this book, with reference to
Bhikkhu Kokalika.

Bhikkhu Kokalika had abused the
two Chief Disciples, the Venerable Sariputta and the Venerable Maha Moggallana.
For this evil deed Kokalika was swallowed up by the earth and had to suffer in Paduma
Niraya
. Learning about his fate, the bhikkhus remarked that Kokalika had to
suffer grievously because he did not control his tongue. To those bhikkhus, the
Buddha said, “Bhikkhus! A bhikkhu must have control over his tongue; his
conduct must be good; his mind must be calm, subdued and not flitting about as
it pleases.”

Then the Buddha spoke in verse as
follows:

Verse 363: The bhikkhu
who controls his mouth (speech) who speaks wisely with his mind
composed, who explains the meaning and the text of the Dhamma, —
sweet are the words of that bhikkhu.

Verse 364. The Monk Abides in Dhamma


Verse 364. The Monk Abides in Dhamma

The bhikkhu who in Dhamma dwells,
in Dhamma delighting and pondering,
remembering the Dhamma - he
does not decline from Dhamma True.

Explanation: The monk who abides in the Dhamma, who delights
in the Dhamma, and is ever mindful of the Dhamma, does not fall away
from the Dhamma of the virtuous.





Dhammapada Verse 364
Dhammaramatthera Vatthu

Dhammaramo dhammarato
dhammam anuvicintayam
dhammam anussaram bhikkhu
saddhamma
1 na parihayati.

Verse 364: The bhikkhu who abides in the
Dhamma, who delights in the Dhamma, who meditates on the Dhamma, and is ever
mindful of the Dhamma, does not fall away from the Dhamma of the virtuous1.


1. saddhamma: the Dhamma of the virtuous; i.e.,
the thirty-seven Factors of Enlightenment (Bodhipakkhiya Dhamma) and the nine
Transcendentals (Lokuttara Dhamma).


The Story of Thera Dhammarama

While residing at the Jetavana
monastery, the Buddha uttered Verse (364) of this book, with reference to Thera
Dhammarama.

When it was made known to the
disciples that the Buddha would realize Parinibbana in four months’ time, most
of the puthujjana bhikkhus (i.e., those who had not attained any of the Maggas)
felt extremely depressed and were at a loss and did not know what to do. They
just stayed close to the Buddha, hardly ever leaving his presence. However,
there was a bhikkhu by the name of Dhammarama who kept to himself and did not go
near the Buddha. His intention was to strive most ardently to attain arahatship
before the passing away of the Buddha. So he strove hard in Insight Meditation
Practice. Other bhikkhus, not understanding his attitude and his noble ambition,
misunderstood his behaviour.

Those bhikkhus took Dhammarama to
the Buddha and said to the Enlightened One, “Venerable Sir! This bhikkhu
does not seem to have any affection or regard or reverence for you; he has been
staying by himself while all the time other bhikkhus are staying close to Your
Venerable presence.” When other bhikkhus had said everything they wanted to
say, Dhammarama respectfully explained to the Buddha why he had not come to see
the Buddha and also reported that he had been striving his utmost in Insight
Meditation Practice.

The Buddha was satisfied and was
very pleased with the explanation and conduct of Dhammarama and he said, “My
son, Dhammarama, you have done very well. A bhikkhu who loves and respects me
should act like you. Those who made offerings of flowers, scents and incense to
me are not really paying me homage. Only those who practise the Dhamma are the
ones who truly pay homage to me.”

Then the Buddha spoke in verse as
follows:

Verse 364: The bhikkhu
who abides in the Dhamma, who delights in the Dhamma, who meditates on
the Dhamma, and is ever mindful of the Dhamma, does not fall away from
the Dhamma of the virtuous.

At the end of the discourse Thera Dhammarama attained arahatship.


Verse 365. Accept What One Receives

He should not disdain his gains
nor live of others envious,
the bhikkhu who is envious
does not attain collectedness.

Explanation: Do not underestimate what you have received.
And again, do not expect what others have got. If a monk covets what
others have received, he will never attain tranquillity of mind.

Verse 366. The Gods Adore Virtuous Monks

Disdaining not his gains,
though little he receives,
pure of life and keen
that bhikkhu devas praise.

Explanation: The monk may have received only a little but
he does not under estimate what was given him. He is satisfied with
what he has received. Such a monk, who leads a pure livelihood, is
praised by deities.




Dhammapada Verses 365 and 366
Vipakkhasevaka Bhikkhu
Vatthu

Salabham natimanneyya
na’ nnesam pihayam care
annesam pihayam bhikkhu
samadhim nadhigacchati.

Appalabhopi ce bhikkhu
salabham nati mannati
tam ve deva pasamasanti
suddhajivim atanditam.

Verse 365: One should not despise what one has
received (by proper means), nor should one envy others their gains. The bhikkhu
who envies others cannot attain Concentration (Samadhi).

Verse 366: Though he receives only a little,
if a bhikkhu does not despise what he has received (by proper means), the devas
will surely praise him who leads a pure life and is not slothful.


The Story of a Bhikkhu Who Associated With a Follower of
Devadatta

While residing at the Jetavana
monastery, the Buddha uttered Verses (365) and (366) of this book, with
reference to a bhikkhu who was on friendly terms with a follower of Devadatta.

Once, a bhikkhu disciple of the
Buddha, being very friendly with a follower of Devadatta, paid a visit to the
monastery of Devadatta and stayed there for a few days. Other bhikkhus reported
to the Buddha that he had been mixing with the followers of Devadatta and that
he had even gone to the monastery of Devadatta, spent there a few days, eating,
sleeping and apparently enjoying the choice food and the comforts of that
monastery. The Buddha sent for that bhikkhu and asked him whether what he had
heard about his behaviour was true. The bhikkhu admitted that he had gone to the
monastery of Devadatta for a few days, but he told the Buddha that he had not
embraced the teaching of Devadatta.

The Buddha then reprimanded him
and pointed out that his behaviour made him appear like a follower of Devadatta.
To him the Buddha said, “My son, even though you have not embraced the
doctrine of Devadatta, you are going about as if you were one of his followers.
A bhikkhu should be contented with what he gets and should not covet other
people’s gains. A bhikkhu who is filled with envy at the good fortune of others
will not attain concentration (samadhi), or Insight, or the Path that leads to
Nibbana (Magga). Only the bhikkhu who is contented with whatever he gets will be
able to attain concentration, Insight and the Path.”

Then the Buddha spoke in verse as
follows:

Verse 365: One should
not despise what one has received (by proper means), nor should one
envy others their gains. The bhikkhu who envies others cannot attain
Concentration (Samadhi).

Verse 366: Though he
receives only a little, if a bhikkhu does not despise what he has
received (by proper means), the devas will surely praise him who leads
a pure life and is not slothful.
