1. Nirodha Sutta

Sariputta tells Ananda that he has attained to a state of cessation of perception and feeling. S.iii.238.

2. Nirodha Sutta

Sariputta tells the monks that one, who has achieved virtue, concentration and insight, may both enter the cessation of perception and feeling and also emerge there from. Udayin (Laludayi), who is present, contradicts this three times, but none upbraids him. Sariputtas words are repeated before the Buddha, and Udayin acts similarly. The Buddha rebukes Ananda for not admonishing Udayin. Later, the Buddha talks of the matter to Upavana and tells him of five qualities which a monk should possess. A.iii.192ff.
