Kalaka Sutta in Theravada glossary... « previous · [K] · next »

Preached by the Buddha at Kalakarama in Saketa when he visited the city at the request of Cula Subhadda (AA.ii.482f).

The Tathagata knows and comprehends whatsoever is seen, heard, comprised, attained, searched into, etc., in the whole world, but he is not subject to it (A.ii.24f).

This sutta is sometimes referred to as the Kalakarama Sutta (E.g., ThagA.i.284). It is said that at the conclusion of the Kalakarama Sutta the earth trembled, as though bearing witness to the Buddhas statement (DA.i.130-1).

It was this sutta which helped Maharakkhita to convert the country of the Yonakas (Sp.i.67; Mhv.xii.39; Mbv.114; Dpv.viii.9).

The sutta was also preached by Kala Buddharakkhita at the Cetiyapabbata to a concourse of people, among whom King Tissa (probably Saddha Tissa) was also present. MA.i.470.

Kalaka(-bhikkhu) Sutta - A discourse delivered by the Buddha (Kalakam bhikkhum arabbha - see Kalaka 4).

It deals with ten dispositions which if present in a monk prevent his being loved or respected, and from being apt to meditate or to lead an ascetic and lonely life, and with the ten opposite dispositions. A.v.164ff. On the name see A.v.176, n.7; also GS.v.110, n.1.
