I was hoping someone could help me find a sutta from the Pali Canon… One is a discourse in which Siddhartha is talking about the importance one-on-one teaching of the Dhamma... He speaks of different people requiring different paths to the same truth. I can’t remember if he went as far as saying that some people require lies to be led to the truth, but the implication was that different people have different perspectives, experiences and preconceptions – therefore the teacher must know the student in order to be able to use those things to convey a proper understanding of the truth. I don't remember if he was explicitly referring to why his teachings should not be written down, but it was when I realized that was why he wrote nothing down. I can’t remember where to find this discourse. Do you know? Thanks.
