Sources for the story of Yasa

Postby Vakkali » Thu Sep 19, 2013 6:03 am

Hey everyone!

I found the story of Yasa in an online version of the Mahavagga. Is this the ONLY source for his story in the Canon? Is there a version in the sutta pitaka somewhere? Thanks in advance, everybody!

Añjali,
Vakkali

I don't think you will find much more about Yasa. The Theragātha and its Commentary would be one place to look.

Some things are found in the Vinaya. A lot of the early history of Buddha's Dispensation is found in the Vinaya.
