Peta VatthuPv 1.2 Sūkaramukha Sutta
Pig’s Mouth

Even using harsh speech is enough to cause suffering.

Nārada Bhante:

Your body is the color of gold and shines in all directions. But your mouth is like a pig’s. What have you done in your previous life?


I did nothing wrong with my body, but I said bad things using my mouth. That is why my body is beautiful but my mouth is like a pig’s, Nārada Bhante.

So Bhante, Now that you can see my body, I strongly encourage you not to do bad things using your mouth, or you will also have the mouth of a pig and suffer like me.
