Sammāparibbājaniya Sutta

The thirteenth sutta of the Cūḷa Vagga of the Suttanipāta. Also called the Mahāsamaya Sutta, because it was taught on the day of the Mahāsamaya. The sutta was taught by the Buddha in reply to a question asked at the Mahāsamaya concourse, by the created (nimmita) Buddha (SNA.i.352). It was the last of the suttas taught on that occasion, and was intended for those devas who were of a lustful disposition (rāgacarita). At the end of the discourse ten billion attained to Arahantship (SNA.361, 367).

The sutta is a dissertation on the right path for a bhikkhu. He has no belief in omens, dreams, etc., subdues his passion, puts away slander, anger, avarice etc., and is liberated from bonds. He is free from attachments, is not opposed to anyone, has no pride, and longs for nibbāna. SN.vss.359‑75.
