“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

I wonder what is the reason for using Devanagari script instead of more widely accepted romanization or one of traditional Pali scripts (Sri Lankan, Thai, Burmese)?
