In the Vanijja Sutta Buddha talks about the four requisites for trade. I couldn't find the four anywhere, does anybody know what he refers to?

  • Strange sutta to me, also. Jan 13, 2017 at 1:13

1 Answer 1


The requisites for trade are not requirements for trading, they are four objects which are traded.

They are four items which are required for monastic living, namely clothing, food, medicine and shelter.
