Asurindaka Sutta

Recounts an interview between the Buddha and Asurindaka Bhāradvāja in Veluvaņa. When Asurindaka heard that Bhāradvāja (probably the chief of the clan) had entered the Order, he was greatly vexed, and going up to the Buddha he abused him. The Buddha remaining silent, Asurindaka thought that he acknowledged defeat. However, the Buddha enlightened him, saying that the worse of the two is he who, when reviled, reviles back; he who does not so revile wins a twofold victory: he seeks the good both of himself and of the other (S.i.163 f; SA.i.178).
