1 Definition(s) from various sources:

1. Vangisa Sutta. Preached by the Buddha at Aggalava cetiya. Vangisas teacher, Nigrodhakappa, had just died there, and Vangisa asks the Buddha if he had attained Nibbana. Vangisas question is really a poem in itself, containing ten verses, in praise of the Buddha. The Buddha says that Kappa has won Nibbana, because he had severed all the bonds of Mara. Vangisa then declares that Kappa attained that state because he followed the Buddhas teaching. SN. pp. 59ff.; the verses of the sutta are included in the Theragatha (1263 79).

In the Commentary (SNA.i.345) the sutta is called Nigrodhakappa Sutta.

2. Vangisa Sutta. A set of ten verses, spoken by Vangisa at Jetavana, soon after winning arahantship, as he sat experiencing the bliss of emancipation. He congratulates himself on having become a disciple of the Buddha. S.i.196; the verses are included in Thag.1253-62.
