Which Sutta? Karma of unknowingly doing evil is worse than knowingly doing evil. Which Sutta(s) talk about this, hopefully in more detail than I can remember?
The subject is karmic consequence, and the law is surprisingly not intuitive.
In comparing two types of actions:
1) Not knowing that an action is evil, one commits an evil action. 2) Knowing that an action is evil, one commits an evil action.
What is not intuitive about that law, is you would think if one had wholesome and skillful intentions, before committing an action which is actually evil, that one is less culpable for the negative karmic consequence, in comparison to someone who knowingly commits and evil action even knowing fully well that the action is evil.
Which sutta(s) talk about this?
I don't remember if I'm stating the general form of the law quite correctly, what concrete examples were given in the sutta(s).
I see there is this thread with mostly the same question: Doing evil knowingly and unknowingly It seems KN Miln might be the only scripture, and no one was able to identify a sutta. The key words from that passage "knowingly" (jānāti) and "evil action" (pāpaka kamma).
So can anyone confirm there is no sutta about that?
