Patika Vagga (or Patiya Vagga)

The third and last section of the Digha Nikaya, the first sutta of the section being the Patika Sutta.

Patika Sutta

The twenty fourth sutta of the Digha Nikaya. The Buddha visits the hermitage of the paribbajaka Bhaggava at Anupiya and the conversation turns on the Licchavi Sunakkhattas reason for leaving the Order. Sunakkhatta was dissatisfied because the Buddha would not work mystic wonders for him nor reveal to him the beginnings of things. Mention is also made of Korakkhattiya, Kandaramasuka and Patikaputta, whom Sunakkhatta held in great esteem for their austerities, but whose spiritual development was insignificant. The Buddha is shown as holding the practice of miracles not entirely worthy.

The second part of the sutta, which is a kind of appendix, deals with the beginnings of things. D.iii.1ff.; for a discussion on the sutta, see Dial.iii.1ff.
