Bhikkhuṇī Sutta

1. Bhikkhuṇī Sutta.– The same as the Bhikkhu Sutta (2), substituting “nun” for “monk.” S.ii.261.

2. Bhikkhuṇī Sutta.– Once a nun, being enamoured of Ānanda, sent a message asking him to visit her, saying that she was ill. Ānanda came and taught her on the body, how food should be taken only to sustain it, how craving for food should be abandoned together with pride and desire for sexual relations. The nun was overcome with shame at her intended deception and, falling at Ānanda’s feet, begged his forgiveness. A.ii.144 f.
