Taught at the Migāramātupāsāda on a full-moon night. A monk asks the Buddha a series of questions regarding the five aggregates of attachment (upādānakkhandhā), their origin, their definition, and also as to how personality-view (sakkāyadiṭṭhi) arises.
The Buddha answers him, and shows how deliverance can be attained by realisation that there is no self in any of the aggregates.
It is said that sixty monks who heard the sutta became Arahants. M.iii.15‑20.
