Two Factors for the Survival of Dhamma

Two Factors for the Survival of Dhamma

"“Dveme, bhikkhave, dhammā saddhammassa ṭhitiyā asammosāya anantara­dhānāya saṃvattanti. Katame dve? Sunikkhittañca padabyañjanaṃ attho ca sunīto. Sunikkhittassa, bhikkhave, padab­yañ­janassa atthopi sunayo hoti. Ime kho, bhikkhave, dve dhammā saddhammassa ṭhitiyā asammosāya anantara­dhānāya saṃvattantī”ti."

A.N. 1.2.21, Adhikaranavagga


"There are two things, O monks, which make the Truth-based Dhamma endure for a long time, without any distortion and without (fear of) eclipse. Which two? Proper placement of words and their natural interpretation. Words properly placed help also in their natural interpretation."
