Jhana monks and Dhamma-devotee monks??

Is there such thing? This seems a later text but still nice

It seems as I said to a friend Mahayana as Dhamma-devotee and Jhana monk as the ones aiming for Arahant. Lol


Thanks for the reference. I had not read this sutta before. It echoes the following from MN64:

MN64:16.1: “Sir, if this is the path and the practice for giving up the five lower fetters, how come some mendicants here are released in heart while others are released by wisdom?”
MN64:16.2: “In that case, I say it is the diversity of their faculties.”
