1. Salla Sutta.– The eighth sutta of the Mahā Vagga of the Suttanipāta. Death is inevitable, lamenting is therefore useless (SN.vss.574‑93). The sutta was taught in order to console a devout patron of the Buddha who, when his son died, starved for seven days (SNA.ii.457). The sutta is described (e.g., AA.i.326) as pālivasena gandhīro.
2. Salla Sutta.– See the Sālā Sutta.
4. Salla Sutta.– The noble disciple weeps not, nor grieves, when afflicted with pain, because, though hurt physically, mentally he is free. He is like a man pierced with only a single barb. v.l. Sallattena Sutta, Sallena Sutta. S.iv.207 f.
