  Vesālī Sutta — A Discourse at Vesālī
Posted by: Bhikkhu Pesala - 11-11-2017, 01:18 AM - Forum: Selected Discourses - No Replies

Added the Vesālī Sutta — A discourse at Vesālī.

A large number of monks commit suicide, or murder one another, due to disgust with the human body. This is also the introductory story to the third offence of defeat for monks — killing a human being.

  Vāsijaṭa Sutta — The Adze Handle
Posted by: Bhikkhu Pesala - 11-06-2017, 08:07 AM - Forum: Selected Discourses - No Replies

I have added the Vāsijaṭa Sutta — The Adze Handle.

The Buddha gives similes of hatching eggs, wearing away the handle of an adze, and the rotting of a ship's rigging to describe the progress of purification through mental development.

  Caṅkī Sutta — A Discourse to Caṅkī
Posted by: Bhikkhu Pesala - 11-03-2017, 08:47 PM - Forum: Selected Discourses - No Replies

Added the Cankī Sutta a discourse to the elderly brahmin Caṅkī. A young student of his interrupts the conversation and engages in a dialogue with the Buddha on how to guard the truth, awaken to the truth, and attain the truth. 

At the end of the discourse, the young Brahmin takes refuge in the Buddha and declares himself to be a disciple, but Caṅkī does not. No doubt he gained great esteem for the Buddha, but his pride seems to have obstructed his faith.
