XXV:3 A bhikkhu should control his tongue
Bhikkhu Kokalika had abused the two Chief Disciples, Venerable Sariputta and Venerable Moggallana. For this evil deed Kokalika had to suffer. Learning about his fate, the bhikkhus remarked that Kokalika had to suffer grievously because he did not control his tongue. To those bhikkhus, the Buddha said, 'A bhikkhu must have control over his tongue, his conduct must be good, his mind must be calm, subdued and not flitting about as it pleases.'
