Itivuttaka 18

Saṅgha­bheda­sutta

Vuttañhetaṃ bhagavatā ­vuttama­rahatāti me sutaṃ: 

“Ekadhammo, bhikkhave, loke uppajjamāno uppajjati bahujanāhitāya bahu­janā­su­khāya bahuno janassa anatthāya ahitāya dukkhāya devamanussānaṃ. Katamo ekadhammo? Saṅghabhedo. Saṅghe kho pana, bhikkhave, bhinne aññamaññaṃ bhaṇḍanāni ceva honti, aññamaññaṃ paribhāsā ca honti, aññamaññaṃ parikkhepā ca honti, aññamaññaṃ pariccajanā ca honti. Tattha appasannā ceva nappasīdanti, pasannānañca ekaccānaṃ aññathattaṃ hotī”ti. Etamatthaṃ bhagavā avoca. Tatthetaṃ iti vuccati: 

“Āpāyiko nerayiko,
Kappaṭṭho saṃghabhedako;
Vaggārāmo adhammaṭṭho,
Yogakkhemā padhaṃsati;
Saṃghaṃ samaggaṃ bhetvāna,
Kappaṃ nirayamhi paccatī”ti.

Ayampi attho vutto bhagavatā, iti me sutanti.

Aṭṭhamaṃ.
