Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)
Pingala Koccha visits the Buddha at Jetavana and questions him on famous teachers such as Purana Kassapa, Makkhali Gosala and others. The Buddha tells him that the reward of the higher life is not to be found in presents, esteem, or good repute, nor in a life of virtue, rapt concentration, or mystic insight. Immortal deliverance only is the prize and the goal of the higher life. If a man needs the very best of wood, no other part of the tree will suffice.
Pingala Koccha accepts the Buddha as his teacher. M.i.198ff
