Āyatana Sutta

1. Āyatana Sutta.– Once when the Buddha was staying in the Kūṭāgarasālā in Vesāli, he taught the monks a discourse on the six spheres of contact (saḷāyatana). The monks listened with rapt attention until Māra, making a terrible din, disturbed their peace of mind. The Buddha admonished the monks not to be led away by Māra, and the latter, discomfited, disappeared (S.i.112).

2. Āyatana Sutta.– The four Noble truths are concerned with the six personal spheres of sense. Effort should be made to realise this. S.v.426.
