2. Sāḷha Sutta.– The Licchavis, Sāḷha and Abhaya, visit the Buddha at the Kūṭāgārasālā and question him regarding the way that is made by purity of morals and that made by self mortification. The Buddha answers the question with many similes. The last part of the sutta describes a fighting man who is a “long distance shooter,” one who shoots by lightning, and a smasher of large objects, and the corresponding classes of the Noble disciples. A.ii.200 f.
