The Teacher of the Dhamma Edit

Translated from the Pali by Maurice O'Connell Walshe


[A monk said:] " 'Dhamma-teacher, Dhamma-teacher' they say, Lord."

"If, monk, anyone teaches a doctrine of disenchanment with decay-and-death, of dispassion [leading to] its cessation, that suffices for him to be called a monk who teaches Dhamma.

"If anyone has trained himself in this disenchanment with decay-and-death, in dispassion [leading to] its cessation, that suffices for him to be called a monk who is trained in what is in conformity with Dhamma.

"If anyone, through disenchanment with decay-and-death, through dispassion [leading to] its cessation, is liberated from grasping, that suffices for him to be called one who has attained Nibbana in this life."
