Do the Suttas in the Pali Canon have contradictiory passages? Has anyone ever come accross one?
I only ask because I was watching a Video the other day on the contradictions that crop up in most world religions and began thinking "Does the Canon have any of this?"
"Oh, threats of Hell and Hopes of Paradise!
One thing at least is certain — This Life flies;
One thing is certain and the rest is Lies;
The Flower that once has blown, forever dies."
