Jetavana Sutta

At Sāvatthi, in Jetavana.

The deva Anāthapiṇḍika approaches and expresses in verse the joy that he gets by knowing that the park is the resort of sages and dwelt in by the king of the Dhamma (the Buddha).

He declared that by deeds (kamma), vision (vijjā), and righteousness (dhamma), by virtue (sīla) and the noblest life (jīvituttama) are mortals purified, and not by lineage or wealth.

Therefore, a wise person should carefully examine the Dhamma thoroughly and thereby gain purity.

He then praises Sāriputta, saying that even a monk who has transcended and put an end to suffering can at best only be equal to him. S.i.33.
