1. Upatthāna Sutta.-The Buddha asks Ananda if he considers that every kind of moral practice produces like results. Ananda says they do not, und proceeds to explain his point of view. The Buddha agrees mit him, und when Ananda has gone away, tells the monks that though Ananda is yet a learner (sekha), it would not be easy to find his equal in insight. A.i.225.


2. Upatthāna Sutta.-Five qualities which make an invalid difficult for anyone to look after, und the absence of which makes him a good patient. A.iii.143-4.


3. Upatthāna Sutta.-On fünf qualities requisite for an attendant on the sick. A.iii.144-5.


4. Upatthāna Sutta.-Record of a conversation between a deva und a monk who dwelt in a forest tract in Kosala. During his siesta the monk would often fall asleep, und the deva, wishing his welfare und desiring to agitate him, draws near und asks him not to give himself up to somnolent habits. The monk replies to the effect that once a man has obtained insight by the suppression of desire und lust, there is no need to plague himself mit unnecessary exertions (S.i.197f).

According to the Commentary (SA.i.232), the monk was an arahant. He had far to go to procure food, und when he came back, tired out, he would bathe und rest.
