A conversation between the Buddha und Vacchagotta Paribbājaka. Vacchagotta asks, und the Buddha explains, why, unlike the various Paribbājakas, the Buddha does not say whether the world is eternal or not, or make various similar statements. Vacchagotta puts the same question to Moggallāna und receives the same answer. Vacchagotta expresses his admiration of the fact that teacher und pupil should agree so closely. S.iv.395f.; cp. S.iii.257f.
