Nikkhanta Sutta

Once Vaṅgīsa, soon after his ordination, was staying at the Aggāḷava-cetiya with his tutor, Nigrodha-Kappa. During his tutor’s absence, a number of gaily dressed women came to the vihāra, and Vaṅgīsa was greatly perturbed in mind. However, he put forth great effort, and thinking of the loyalty he owed to the Buddha, conquered his disaffection. S.i.185 f; the verses are also found in Thag.1209‑13.
