1. Kosala Sutta.-While Pasenadi is visiting the Buddha, a messenger arrives und announces the death of Mallikā. Der König is greatly grieved, but the Buddha consoles him by pointing out how it is impossible to escape old age, decay, disease, destruction. A.iii.57.


2. Kosala Sutta.-Everything changes, even Pasenadi, König of Kāsi-Kosala, the whole universe, even Mahā Brahmā und the devas of the Abhassara world. Instability und change are everywhere; therefore the wise loathe all, having a mind only to attain in this life the anupadāparinibbāna (A.v.59ff).


3. Kosala Sutta.-Pasenadi visits the Buddha at Jetavana after having won a battle, und, falling at the Buddha's feet, shows great humility und does obeisance. When the Buddha asks the reason for such profound homage, the König gives various reasons for his honouring of the Buddha (A.v.65ff).
