Rukkha Sutta

1. Rukkha Sutta.– Just as a tree that leans towards the east falls to the cast when cut down, so does a monk who cultivates the Eightfold Path incline to nibbāna. S.v.47.

2. Rukkha Sutta.– Mighty trees, grown from tiny seeds, overspread other trees and kill them; so are householders destroyed by their lusts. There are five hindrances (nīvaraṇa) that overspread the heart; the seven factors of enlightenment (bojjhaṅga) are not like them. S.v.96 f.

3. Paṭhama Rukkha Sutta.– Just as among all trees in Jambudīpa, the rose-apple tree is declared the best, among the requisites of enlightenment, wisdom is declared to be the best. S.v.237.

The Dutiya, Tatiya, and Catthutarukkha Sutta compare wisdom to the Pāricchattaka tree of Tāvatiṃsa, the Cittapāṭali of the Asurā, and the Kūṭasimbalī tree of the Supiṇṇā respectively. S.v.238.

4. Rukkha Sutta.– Of those who sit at the foot of trees, he who does so because he desires seclusion and his needs are few, is the best. A.iii.219.

5. Rukkha Sutta.– On four kinds of trees and four corresponding kinds of men. Some men are evil and their company is evil, some are good and their company is evil, etc. A.ii.109.
