Bāhiyadārucīriya’s Arahantship after listening to one verse from the Buddha

Even with this little verse, if we have the right comprehension of the key concepts, we can go from puthujjana status to the Arahantship in a few seconds.

Recorded as the 101st verse of the Dhammapada:


Sahassamapi ce gāthā,


 ekam gāthāpadaṁ seyyo,

 yaṁ sutvā upasammati.” 


“Better than a thousand verses,

  which are useless,

  is a single useful verse,

  hearing which one attains Peace.”
