It.018 Sanghabheda Sutta | Bheda Sutta There is one thing, bhikkhus, which, when it appears in the world, appears to the detriment of many persons, to the misery of many persons, to the loss, detriment and suffering of devas and humans. What is that one thing? It is disunity in the Sangha.13 When the Sangha is divided there are mutual quarrels, mutual recriminations, mutual denigrations and mutual expulsions. In this situation those who are unsympathetic are not converted and some who are sympathetic change their minds." One who divides the Sangha Abides in a state of misery, in hell, For the aeon's full duration. Delighting in dissent, unrighteous, He is deprived of security from bondage; By dividing a unified Sangha He suffers in hell for an aeon. 45/126 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.010 disunity
