It.048 Aapaayika Sutta | Aapaaya Sutta Bhikkhus, these two will go to a state of misery, to hell, by not giving up such conduct as this. What two? One who while no liver of the holy life pretends to be one who lives the holy life, and one who falsely accuses another who lives the holy life in complete purity of not living it. These two will go to a state of misery, to hell, by not giving up such conduct as this." The false-accuser goes to hell And also one who denies the deed he did, Both these become equal hereafter, Persons of base actions in the world beyond. Many imposters wear the yellow robe Though evil-natured and uncontrolled. Because of their evil deeds, Those evil ones are born in hell. Far better for him to swallow A fiery hot iron ball Than that immoral and uncontrolled He should eat the country's alms. 45/327 Itivuttaka Khuddhaka It.042 misery
