Ghaṭīkāra Sutta

1. Ghaṭīkāra Sutta.– Taught during a tour in Kosala. The Buddha turned off the main road and, when be came to the spot which had once been Vegaḷiṅga, he smiled. Being asked by Ānanda the reason for his smile, the Buddha related to him and to the monks the story of Ghaṭīkāra, the potter of Vegaḷiṅga, as given above (M.ii.45 ff). It is said (MA.ii.717) that the Buddha wished to make known to the monks the great piety of Ghaṭīkāra. The sutta was repeated at a shrine near Todeyya, which was being worshipped by the people without their knowing its significance. The Buddha related the sutta and explained that the shrine was the thūpa of Kassapa Buddha. DhA.iii.251.

2. Ghaṭīkāra Sutta.– Relates the visit of Ghaṭīkāra Mahā Brahmā to the Buddha at Jetavana and the ensuing conversation. S.i.35 f, 60.
