Faults that are equivalent to disrespecting the Buddha
The Buddha expounded the Sarvavaidalyasaṃgraha Sutra: If Bhikshu in the Sangha community supports other religion or teachings and proclaim other scriptures while training on the path, and ends up arising greater intention in defaming venerables, this is equivalent to slandering all the Buddhas teachings, conceived as abandoning the teachings, and seeking to increase all their faults. This is the not the cause for Buddha’s final attainment and ending the cause of cyclic existence, but they would definitely fall into the miserable realms. So what would happen? Those who see faults in the venerables are like reviling the Buddhas, and would suffer from loathing the sutras and teachings. Those who despise the venerables are comparable to disrespecting Buddhas. Those who dislike seeing the venerables, will also not arise joy when seeing the Buddhas. Those who defame the venerables are equivalent to defaming the Buddha. If anyone with nonvirtuous thoughts stops or harm the practicing Bodhisattvas (from benefitting sentient beings), it will result in not being able to meet the Dharma path for limitless eons. If one views the Bodhisattva in a nonvirtuous manner, one will be born blind life after life. If anyone verbally or through written words slanders any venerable, one will be born mute, without tongue for limitless eons.
