I've read the sutta and found the Pali rendering of the same and yet I'm at a loss to understand why it is called the Silaasutta. Perhaps I'm daft but if anyone has a clue I would be grateful to hear it. Mettaya!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Hi Sam,

I also didn't quite understand the nuances that Bhikkhu Bodhi was trying to get across in that note. One may need to study the Pali version to see what he is talking about. I'm in the middle of a trip, so I'm probably not paying that sutta enough attention...
