Scriptures on not commercialising the Buddha Dharma

Postby plwk » Sun Jan 20, 2013 12:18 pm

I am interested about collecting scriptural citations on advising the laity and monastics against commercialising, making monetary profits for self or corporations and related such from the Buddha Dharma. If anyone knows any appropriate one(s), please contribute. :thanks:

The Lam Rim by Lama Tzongkhapa mentions the negativity of selling texts and holy images for profit.
