Abstinence From Flattery 戒谄曲


You and other Bhikṣus, should know that the mind of flattery, with the path, contradict each other. Therefore, there should be straightforwardness of your minds.


You should know that as flattery, is only for cheating and deception, of people entering the path, then is it without this having a part. Therefore, you and others, should have the upright mind, with the straightforward mind as the root.
