Purābheda Sutta

The tenth sutta of the Aṭṭhakavagga of the Suttanipāta. It was among the suttas taught at the Mahāsamaya in answer to the questions asked of the Buddha by the created Buddha (SNA.ii.548).

It is a long disquisition on the characteristics of a calm sage (upasanta). He is free from craving, anger, etc., is equable and thoughtful, possessed of calm, and walks in the path of righteous men (SN. vs. 848‑61).

The sutta was taught for the benefit of those of intelligent temperament (buddhicaritā). SNA.i.361; MNid. 223.
