Buddha Vacana (August 26, 2555)

There are these four persons found in the world.  What four?  One with little learning who does not benefit from his learning, one of little learning who does benefit from his learning, one of great learning who does not benefit from his learning, and one of great learning who does benefit from his learning.

And how does one with little learning not benefit from his learning?  In this case, a person is not well-learned in the discourses, he knows neither the letter nor the spirit, and he does not live in accordance with the Dhamma.  And how does one with little learning benefit from his learning?  In this case, a person is not well-learned in the discourses, but of what he knows he understands both the letter and the spirit and lives in accordance with it.  How does one with great learning not benefit from his learning?  In this case, a person is widely learned in the discourses, but he understands neither the letter nor the spirit and does not live in accordance with the Dhamma.  And finally, how does one with great learning benefit from his learning?  Here, a person is widely learned in the discourses, he understands both the letter and the spirit and he lives in accordance with the Dhamma.

-- A.II,6

ขอบคุณค่ะท่าน SR ธรรมะยามดึก

Thanking me is not quite what I have in mind.

"Sadhu!" (It is so!) or "I agree with this" is more in line with why I post the Teaching in English. If we have to learn to use English in ASEAN situations, we should learn to use the Teaching (in English too) in days of our lives ;-)
