1. Kusināra Sutta.– Taught at Baliharaṇa in Kusinārā. Offerings made to a monk by the pious bring him no real advantage if he is slothful; he should be strenuous and vigilant. A.i.274 f.
2. Kusināra Sutta.– Also taught at Baliharaṇa. A monk wishing to rebuke another monk, should consider five things with regard to himself:–
- Whether he is of blameless conduct in body and speech;
- Whether he really wishes well for his colleague and is not influenced by envy;
- Whether he is learned in the doctrine;
- Whether his own observance of the monastic discipline (Pāṭimokkha) is perfect.
- He should also consider whether his rebuke is seasonable, justified by facts, administered gently, for the other’s benefit, and out of compassion for him (A.v.79 f).
3. Kusināra Sutta.– Taught at Upavattana in Kusinārā, in the sāla-grove of the Mallā. The Buddha, just before his death, invites the monks to question him with regard to any doubts or misgivings they may have. They remain silent (A.ii.79 f). The sutta occurs also as part of the Mahāparinibbāna Sutta. D.ii.137, 154.
