My person remembers a possible common know story about a Brahman collecting as much as possible cow's leading to sorrows for poor. The Sublime Buddha approached him one day, gave a talk and later he released the cows.

It might be that's just a later tale not found in the scripts, my person just does not remember where having been come across aside in an illustrated "Children"-book.

Good if one likes to share messages on livelihood.

[Note that this isn't given for stacks, exchange, other world-binding trades but for release from this wheel]

  • "Note that this isn't given for stacks, exchange, other world-binding trades but for release from this wheel" What does this mean? – Mast Sep 17 '20 at 14:13
  • That is isn't given for stacks, exchange, other world-binding trades but for release from this wheel, maybe? – Samana Johann Sep 17 '20 at 16:19
  • That's what you said, but what does it mean? – Mast Sep 17 '20 at 16:43

The following is somewhat like the posted question, but not exactly:

SN35.241:7.4: Sir, may I receive the going forth, the ordination in the Buddha’s presence?”

SN35.241:7.5: “Well then, Nanda, return the cows to their owners.”

SN35.241:7.6: “Sir, the cows will go back by themselves, since they love their calves.”

SN35.241:7.7: “Still, Nanda, you should return them to their owners.”

Here the Buddha emphasizes ethics in our relationships with others. The Noble Path starts with Right View.

  • ethics, relationship, SC... ironical, or, cow-release? Maybe good for feedback their. Sadhu for welmeant effort anyway, but Atma guesses being a commentary-story, Upasaka Karl. – Samana Johann Sep 15 '20 at 14:57
