5.10. Yasadatta

With fault-finding mind, the dullardlistens to the victor’s instruction.They’re as far from the true teachingas the earth is from the sky.

With fault-finding mind, the dullardlistens to the victor’s instruction.They fall away from the true teaching,like the moon in the waning fortnight.

With fault-finding mind, the dullardlistens to the victor’s instruction.They wither away in the true teaching,like a fish in too little water.

With fault-finding mind, the dullardlistens to the victor’s instruction.They don’t thrive in the true teaching,like a rotten seed in a field.

But one with contented mindwho listens to the victor’s instruction—having wiped out all defilements;having witnessed the unshakable;having arrived at ultimate peace—they are quenched without defilements.
