I recall reading the Buddhist scriptures say those who revile Noble Ones are reborn in hell.

Does this also apply to an unenlightened (puthujjana) monk that reviles a Noble Layperson?

  • not disagreeing, but I wondered if you could quote the sutta that appears in? obviously, many mahayanists are somewhat offensive to Buddhist saints.

Sure. But they wouldn't risk much here in regard of touch Noble Ones, or? Even a fault couldn't be expected here, as not possible to trace it an area of Upasaka, Upasika, for the most.

How ever, even if a Noble One would act wrongly toward another, such would block his progress as long as not pardoned, brought to be solved again.
