Tissa Sutta

1. Tissa Sutta.– Relates the story of the Buddha’s nephew, Tissa (14), who visits the Buddha and complains that the monks abuse him (S.ii.282).

2. Tissa Sutta.– The story of Tissa (14) being taken to the Buddha because he complained of distaste for the monk’s life. By means of an allegory the Buddha teaches him how he can attain nibbāna, and promises to help him to do so. S.iii.106 f.

3. Tissa Sutta.– Mahā-Moggallāna, hearing the Buddha report a conversation between two devatā at Gijjhakūṭa, visits the Brahmā Tissa (6) in order to discover if the devas had knowledge of cessation with remainder (sa-upādisesa) and cessation without remainder (anupādisesa).

Tissa tells him what he knows and Moggallāna describes his visit to the Buddha. The Buddha tells him that Tissa had omitted to mention the individual (puggala) who dwells on the signless (animittavihārī), which he then proceeds to explain (A.iv.77 f; cp. A.iii.332 f).
