Sāketa Sutta

Sāketa Sutta.– The Buddha explains to the monks at Sāketa how to reckon the five controlling faculties (indriya) as the five powers (bala), and the five powers as the five controlling faculties. By developing them, release can be attained. S.v.219 f.

Sāketa Pañha.– The Aṭṭhasālinī (DhSA.267) mentions that the elder Tipiṭaka Mahādhammarakkhita, in talking of consciousness, once referred to the Sāketa Pañha.

It is said that in Sāketa the monks raised the query, “When by one volition kamma is put forth, is there one conception only, or different conceptions?” Unable to decide, they consulted the elders well-versed in the Abhidhamma, who declared that just as from one mango only one sprout puts forth, so by one volition there is only one conception, and for different volitions, different conceptions.
