Sekha Sutta

1. Sekha Sutta.– Taught by Ānanda at Kapilavatthu, in the new Mote hall of the Licchavī. The Buddha taught until late into the night and then asked Ānanda, to continue, suggesting to him as a topic the training of an adept. Ānanda explained in detail how a monk could be virtuous, watchful over his senses, temperate in eating, vigilant, established in the seven virtuous qualities (faith, etc.), and be able at will to induce the four absorptions (jhāna). M.i.353 ff.

2. Sekkha Sutta v.l. of Sekha.– The learner is one imperfectly possessed of right view, etc. S.v.14.

3. Sekha Sutta.– A detailed explanation of the difference between a learner and an adept. S.v.229 f.

4. Paṭhama Sekha Sutta.– On five things leading to decline in a monk’s training: delight in business, in gossip, in sleeping, in company, and want of reflection on the mind as freed. A.iii.116.

5. Dutiya Sekha Sutta.– The same as the above, but in greater detail under each head. A.iii.117 f.

6. Sekha Sutta.– On six things that lead to failure in a monk’s training: delight in worldly activity, in talk, in sleep, in company, want of restraint in the senses, immoderate eating. A.iii.329.

7. Sekha Sutta.– On seven things: the six given in sutta (6), to which is added inattention to business of the Order. A.iv.24.
