sadhu!

i think this sutta has a lot in common with the last one. we learn more about what to look for in a teacher, but we also learn that we should be honest about what we believe, and why we believe it. this is a great guard against (negative)fundamentalism.

"Beautifully taught is the Lord's Dhamma, immediately apparent, timeless, of the nature of a personal invitation, progressive, to be attained by the wise, each for himself." Anguttara Nikaya V.332
