Idiotic Fool »
Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

What Deficiencies actually defines a Fool?

A certain bhikkhu once asked the Blessed Buddha:
Venerable Sir, it is said: A simple fool, a simple fool...
In what way, Venerable Sir, can one rightly be called a simple fool?
Bhikkhu, it is because one has neither developed, nor ever cultivated these
7 Links to Awakening that one rightly is called a simple fool... What seven?

1: The Awareness Link to Awakening.
2: The Investigation Link to Awakening.
3: The Energy Link to Awakening.
4: The Joy Link to Awakening.
5: The Tranquillity to Awakening.
6: The Concentration Link to Awakening.
7: The Equanimity Link to Awakening.

It is because one has neither developed, nor ever cultivated these
7 Factors of Enlightenment that one rightly is called a simple fool...
