MN21. Simile of the Saw – Kakacupama Sutta

This episode is the 21th sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya: the Kakacūpama Sutta which is known as the “simile of the saw”. This teaching has several memorable similes on the importance of patience and love even when faced with abuse and criticism. The Buddha finishes with the simile of the saw, one of the most memorable similes found in the Suttas.

This translation of the Kakacūpama Sutta is by Bhikkhu Sujato and was sourced from Sutta Central.
