Koṭṭhika Sutta

1. Koṭṭhika Sutta.– A group of three suttas containing conversations between Mahā-Koṭṭhika and Sāriputta on what constitutes ignorance. S.iii.175.

2. Koṭṭhika Sutta.– Three suttas. Mahā-Koṭṭhika visits the Buddha and asks for a brief statement of the Dhamma. The Buddha answers that desire should be put away for that which is (1) impermanent, (2) suffering, (3) without a self. S.iv.145 f.

3. Koṭṭhika Sutta.– Mahā-Koṭṭhika visits Sāriputta at Isipatana and asks him which is true: to say that the eye is the bond of objects or that objects are the bond of the eye? Sāriputta replies that neither is true: the bond consists in the desire and lust arising from their contact. If two men are tied to each other, the bond consists not in either of the men but in the rope that binds them. If this were not so, the religious life would be purposeless. S.iv.162 f.

4. Koṭṭhika Sutta.– A conversation between Mahā-Koṭṭhika and Sāriputta as to whether or not anything exists after the passionless ending, without remainder, of the six spheres of contact (phassāyata nānaṃ asesavirāganirodhā). The conversation is repeated between Mahā-Koṭṭhika and Ānanda. A.ii.161 f.

5. Koṭṭhika Sutta.– Mahā-Koṭṭhika asks Sāriputta a series of questions as to why the holy life (brahmacariyā) is lived by the Blessed One, to all of which Sāriputta answers “No.” He then goes on to explain that the purpose of the holy life is the realisation of the Four Noble Truths. A.iv.382 f.
