Buddha Vacana (August 22, 2555)

The Lord said: “If anyone should criticize me, the Dhamma or the Sangha, you should not because of that be angry, resentful or upset.  For if you did, that would hinder you and you would not be able to know whether what they said was right or wrong.  Would you?”

“No, Lord.”

“So, if others criticize me, the Dhamma or the Sangha, simply explain what is incorrect, saying: ‘That is incorrect.  That is not right.  That is not our way.  We do not do that.’ But also, if others should praise me, the Dhamma or the Sangha, you should not because of that be pleased, elated or self-satisfied.  For if you were, that would hinder you.  So, if others praise me, the Dhamma or the Sangha, then simply explain what is correct, saying: ‘That is correct.  That is right.  That is our way.  That is what we do.’

-- D.I,3
