Looking for sutta on Simile of the Arrow

Postby dhammapal » Sat Oct 23, 2010 11:05 am

Hi,

I’m trying to find a sutta about the simile of being shot with two arrows as physical and mental pain. I found sutta, but I vaguely remember another one where the Buddha says that people get shot by an arrow (physical pain) then shoot themselves with another arrow (mental pain). I appreciate the humor as I have a bad cold at the moment.

Thanks / dhammapal.
