Kaccāna Peyyāla/Sutta

Kaccāna Peyyāla.– Mentioned in the Aṅguttaranikāya Commentary (AA.i.118) together with the Madhupiṇḍika Sutta and the Parāyana Sutta as an exposition of Mahā-Kaccāna, in consequence of which the Buddha declared the elder to be chief among those who could explain in detail what had been stated briefly. The reference is probably to the Kaccāna Sutta.

Kaccāna Sutta.– A discourse to the monks by Mahā-Kaccāna on the six topics of recollection — the Buddha, Dhamma, and Saṅgha, one’s own virtues, generosity and the devas (A.iii.314 ff). It is quoted in the Visuddhimagga (p.519), where it is stated that to speak of casual happenings as a mere arising is to contradict both the Padesa-vihāra Sutta and the Kaccāna Sutta. See also Kaccāna Peyyāla.
