The Pali Canon: What a Buddhist Must Know
by Bhikku P.A. Payutto

Translated by Dr Somseen Chanawangsa
               The Buddha once said he would enter the Final Nibbāna only when all the Four Assemblies, namely monks and nuns – whether they were elders, middlings or newly ordained ones – together with layman and laywomen – celibate and married alike – were endowed with the qualities of worthy custodians of the Teaching, as follows:

               (1) They must be well-versed in the teachings of the Buddha and have proper conduct in accordance with the teachings;
               (2) They must be able to teach others, having learnt the teachings and conducted themselves well;
               (3) They must be able to confute false doctrines, or teachings that are distorted or different from the original Doctrine and Discipline, when such teachings arise.
