Bhūmija Sutta

1. Bhūmija Sutta.– Bhūmija Thera once went to the house of his nephew Jayasena in Rājagaha.

Jayasena questioned him about the Buddha’s teaching, and, pleased with what he heard, entertained Bhūmija to a meal.

Bhūmija reported this to the Buddha, who approved of what he had said to Jayasena and further developed the theme.

Right view (sammā-diṭṭhi) is absolutely essential to the winning of the fruits of the higher life; it is just as impossible to get oil out of sand or milk from a cow’s horn at it is to obtain the fruits of higher life with a wrong view (micchā-diṭṭhi). M.iii.138 ff.

2. Bhūmija Sutta.– Bhūmija Thera approaches Sāriputta and questions him about the various views taught by other recluses and brahmins regarding kamma being the cause of feeling. Sāriputta explains that feeling is dependently arisen, and is conditioned by contact. Ānanda hears their conversation and relates it to the Buddha, who confirms what Sāriputta had taught to Bhūmija. S.ii.38.
