Anāthapiṇḍika Sutta

1. Anāthapiṇḍika Sutta.– Similar to the Anāthapiṇḍikovāda Sutta (infra), but the greater part of this discourse is taken up with the words of consolation, courage and suggestion addressed by Sāriputta to the banker, and we are told that his pains were allayed. No mention is made of the advice not to cling to matters mundane, nor of the death of the banker almost immediately afterwards. Instead, it is stated that Sāriputta and Ānanda were given a meal from the banker’s own cooking-pot and that they went away after thanking him. Ānanda reports to the Buddha the news of their visit, and the Buddha praises Sāriputta for his wisdom. S.v.380‑5.

2. Dutiya Anāthapiṇḍika Sutta.– The same as the above, but Ānanda is given as the admonisher and Anāthapiṇḍika is made to claim that he had not violated a single one of the obligations binding on a householder (gihisāmīcakāni sikkhāpadāni). S.v.385‑7.

3. Anāthapiṇḍika Sutta.– Records a visit paid by Anāthapiṇḍika to the Buddha, who tells him of the five kinds of guilty dread (pañca-bhayāni verāni) which are allayed in the noble disciple, and of the four limbs of the Stream-winner (sotāpattiyaṅgāni). S.v.387‑9.

Anāthapiṇḍika Vagga.– The second chapter of the Devaputta Saṃyutta of the Saṃyuttanikāya contains a series of verses spoken before the Buddha on various occasions by devas, the last of them being Anāthapiṇḍika (reborn in the deva world). S.i.51 ff.
