Gaṅgāpeyyāla

In the fifth book of the Saṃyuttanikāya a repetition under the name of Gaṅgāpeyyāla occurs several times. “Just as the Gaṅgā flows to the east, slopes to the east, and tends to the east, even so, a monk who cultivates the factors of enlightenment (bojjhaṅga) (S.v.135, 137), the foundations of mindfulness (satipaṭṭhāna) (196), the controlling faculties (indriya) (239, 241), the right efforts (padhāna) (244), the powers (bala) 249, 251), the bases of success (iddhipāda) (290), and the absorptions (jhāna) (307), slopes and tends towards nibbāna.”
