1. Apatti Sutta - Ananda informs the Buddha at Ghositarama in Kosambi, that Bahiyas efforts to bring about dissension in the Order had not been suppressed because Anuruddha, being Bahiyas colleague, did not want to interfere. The Buddha tells him that they should not depend on Anuruddha for interference in disputes, for he was by temperament unfitted for such action. He then proceeds to discourse to Ananda on the four probable reasons for a monk being desirous of creating dissension (A.ii.239f).

2. Apatti Sutta - Deals with the four kinds of fears produced by transgressions, involving either being taken in the act and punished or having to confess guilt and receive punishment. A.ii.240-3.
