Brahma Sutta

1. Brahma Sutta.– The Buddha is under the Ajapāla-nigrodha tree, soon after the Enlightenment, pondering on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as the only way to nibbanā. Sahampati visits him and agrees with his sentiments. S.v.167.

2. Sahampatibrahma Sutta.– The scene is the same as in the above. The Buddha is reflecting on the five controlling faculties (saddhā, sati, etc.), as the way to nibbāna, and Sahampati visits him and agrees with him, relating how, when he was a monk named Sahaka, in the time of Kassapa Buddha, he developed the five controlling faculties (indriya) and was born in the Brahma world. S.v.232 f.

3. Brahma Sutta.– “Monks, those families where the parents are revered by their children live with Brahma … first teachers .. deities … live with the gift-worthy. A.ii.70.
