Title-Buddha’s Talks-Effects of Forbearance


 

 

 

 
“Beloved bhikkhus, Because I, Buddha, is being completed with the strength of my ‘forbearance’ , not responding with guilts in return against those who committed. I’m the one being bended down and respected, depended as a support by all the people”, said Buddha.

 

 

 

“I preach that a person having the arm forces like ability to endure forbearingly repeatedly, having the strength of forbearance, not responding with anger, in return, against the ones either abusing in harsh words of ten kinds, or beating with hands and fastening in a lockup, etc, is the one who has finished all except the evil deeds”, said Buddha.

 

 

 

{The Brahmin, Akkausaka bhara duaja Vatthu, Dhammapada}

 

 

 

 
After enduring forbearingly on the younger brother of Brahmin, Aggika bhara duaja, the Brahmin, Akkausaka bhara duaja having an anger and abusing in words. Buddha preached the ‘Dhamma’ to him with kindly affection, kindly regard and had him obtained deliverance. Referring to this, Buddha preached on the effects as above.

 

 

 

 
Buddha preached that the up-right, conscientious people never respond either ‘anger’ with ‘anger’ in return, or ‘enmity’ with ‘enmity’ in return; it was the deed only the foolish committed. Buddha preached it on every occasion.

 

 

 

 
“A certain person gets angry in return with other having an anger. Due to getting angry in return with other having an anger, that person is wicked. A person who does not anger in return with an angry one, defeats the rarely defeated enemy”, said Buddha.
{Akkausa Sutta}

 

 

 

‘Not, reacting the angery one with anger in return’, ‘not bearing malice in feeling ill-will against one who bears malice in feeling ill-will’, etc, appear due to ‘forbearance’. Forbearance should be grown as a strength. That kind of strength looks like the strength of an arm force. That person is the one being completed with the necessary deeds except the evil.

 

 

 

 
Buddha preached on the disadvantages of non-forbearance, as well as the advantages of forbearance.

 

 

 

 
“Bhikkhus! The disadvantages of non-forbearance are these five kinds. What five kinds are –
(1) The people dislike him;
(2) He has many enmities;
(3) He has many guilts;
(4) One has to die in confusion;
(5) And one has to get to the evil destination having a lack of well-being, the hell, after death” , said Buddha.
{Dutiya Akkhanti Sutta}

 

 

 

 
“Bhikkhus! The advantages of forbearance are these five kinds. What five kinds are-
(1) Many people love him;
(2) Not being harsh;
(3) Not feeling sad;
(4) One has to die without having confusion;
(5) And one has to get to the good destination, the devas world, after death. The advantages of forbearance are these five kinds”,
said Buddha.
{Dutiya Akkhanti Sutta}

 

 

 

 
‘Forbearance’ appears due to a lack of ‘dosa’. Again, having a lack of ‘dosa’ depends on growing ‘metta’ being free (from opposite). Those people taking meditation of ‘metta’, are completed with ‘forbearance’ (‘khanti’) since they can reject ‘dosa’. A person who does not reject ‘dosa’ is a harsh one, and a person who can reject ‘dosa’ is a delicate one.

 

 

 

 
“Anger (dosa) should be rejected. Since anger (dosa) had been rejected, one did not get angry, even though others caused him to be angry. That person was said to be a delicate one”, said Buddha.
{Canta Sutta}

 

 

 

 
In other words, being delicate in behaviour, or being harsh, is indicating forbearance, or angry habit of a certain person. Those who practised the deed of up-right, conscientious are delicate in behaviour as the filthy active states of mind, such as ‘lobha’, ‘dosa’, ‘mauha’, etc, were reduced. They can continue holding forbearance (khanti). Therefore, the deed ‘forbearance’ , Buddha himself practised as well as praised, will have a certain person received the advantages such as having a support in protecting his mind.
