[ASK] What Sutta It Is????

Postby seniya » Mon Apr 04, 2011 1:51 pm

I remember when I am still on my school-age, I ever read a sutta quotation on a Buddhis magazine like this: Ananda said to the Buddha that half of holy life is love (metta). But the Buddha told him that entire holy life is love.

But what I mean is not Upaddha Sutta (SN 45.2) that says "Entire holy life is friendship". Does any can help me find this sutta? Thank you very much....

I am going to suggest that the quote isn't discoverable as it doesn't exist in the Suttas. It was probably an incorrect paraphrase - I wonder which Buddhist magazine, and when, because perhaps we could search there directly...

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]

:goodpost:

Indeed... it sounds like a misquote of SN 45.2.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Thx for the answer. Because I don't have the access to entire Pali canon (in English because I can't read Pali), I think it is a different sutta. About the magazine, it is a local Buddhist magazine in my country using my native language which is not published again...
