A discussion on all aspects of Theravāda Buddhism
"Bhikkhus, these two do not misrepresent the Tathāgata. Which two? One who explains a discourse whose meaning requires interpretation as a discourse whose meaning requires interpretation, and one who explains a discourse whose meaning is explicit as a discourse whose meaning is explicit. These two do not misrepresent the Tathāgata." -AN 2.25 from Bhikkhu Bodhi's translation of the Anguttara Nikaya
How can one know which discourses have meanings that require interpretation, and which discourses have meanings that are explicit?
