Skill in Questions
HOW THE BUDDHA TAUGHT
≥ 
h›nissaro Bhikkhu(Geoffrey DeGraff)
“That’s the purpose of discussion, that’s the purpose of counsel, that’sthe purpose of drawing near, that’s the purpose of lending ear: i.e., theliberation of the mind through no clinging.” — AN 3:68“Just as if a man with good eyesight standing on the shore of a body of water were to see a large fish rise. The thought would occur to him, ‘Fromthe rise of this fish, from the break of its ripples, from its speed, it is a large fish, not a small one.’ In the same way, one individual, in discussion withanother, knows this: ‘From the way this person rises to an issue, from theway he applies [his reasoning], from the way he addresses a question, he isdiscerning, not dull.’” — AN 4:192
