Anuruddha Sutta

1. Anuruddha Sutta.– Taught by Anuruddha Thera to Pañcakaṅga, the king’s carpenter, at Sāvatthi, on the conclusion of a meal given by him to the elder and three others. It explains the two kinds of emancipation of mind, the “boundless” and the “vast,” and the results of developing them, which produce birth among the Brilliant Gods.

Sabhiya-Kaccana, who was evidently one of Anuruddha’s companions on this occasion, asks him the reason for the difference in degree of the brilliance of the gods; he is answered to his satisfaction. M.iii.144‑52.

2. Anuruddha Sutta.– Records the incident of Jālinī’s visit to Anuruddha Thera, and her unsuccessful efforts to tempt him with the joys of heaven. S.i.200.

3. Anuruddha Sutta.– The Buddha explains to Anuruddha, in answer to his questions, why beings are born as women. A.i.281.

4. Anuruddha Sutta.– Two Suttas on how Sāriputta admonished Anuruddha to give up boasting about his attainments and concentrate on the element of the deathless (amata-dhātu), and how Anuruddha following the advice became an Arahant. A.i.281‑3.

5. Anuruddha Sutta.– On the eight thoughts of a great man (mahāpurisa vitakka).

Anuruddha had acquired seven of them and the Buddha paid him a special visit to teach him the eighth, which brought him Arahantship. Later the Buddha repeated the discourse to the monks. A.iv.228 ff.

6. Anuruddha Sutta.– The Buddha explains to Anuruddha how women may be born among the Manāpakāyikadevā. A.iv.262 ff.

Anuruddha Saṃyutta.– The fifty-second section of the Saṃyuttanikāya. It forms the eighth section of the Mahā Vagga, and contains accounts of incidents connected with Anuruddha, his meditations in the Jetavana on the four foundations of mindfulness and the benefits of their development, his admonition to the monks on the banks of the Sutanu River, his conversations with Sāriputta and Mahā-Moggallāna in Sāketa and in the Ambapāli Grove, his discourse in the Saḷalāgāra, his illness while staying in Andhavana, and his accounts of how he came by his psychical powers, etc. S.v.294 ff.
