Kosambiya (Kosambaka) Sutta

Taught at the Ghositārāma in Kosambī to the quarrelsome monks of that place.

The sutta deals with amity and the six means of promoting it —

  1. acts of goodwill,
  2. kind words
  3. kind thoughts
  4. sharing all things with one’s fellow celibates,
  5. living the higher life in its entirety, following the doctrine that leads to the destruction of suffering,
  6. and introspection, which leads to the realisation of truth (M.i.320 ff; cp. Upakkilesa Sutta M.ii.152 ff).

The Kosambaka Sutta is given (e.g., in DA.i.123) as an example of a discourse originating from a quarrel.
