Pamāda Sutta

1. Pamāda Sutta.– Two Pacceka Brahmās, Subrahmā and Suddhāvāsa, came to see the Buddha, but finding him engaged in meditation, decided to visit a certain infatuated (pamatta) Brahmā in a certain Brahma world. On their suggesting to him that he should visit the Buddha, he reproduced himself one thousand times and said he had greater psychic power than the Buddha. However, Subrahmā reproduced himself two thousand times, and pointed out that the Buddha’s psychic power exceeded theirs. It is said that the infatuated Brahmā visited the Buddha later. S.i.146 f.

2. Pamāda Sutta.– Another name for the Appaka Sutta (q.v.) S.i.73.
