Bahiya sutta commentary

Postby bodom » Fri Jan 16, 2009 8:10 pm

I was wondering if there is an available commentary to the Bahiya sutta. Im sure Buddhagosa has covered this sutta but i was wondering where it could be found if it was?

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

Hi Bodom,

The main sources are Buddhaghosa's commentary to verse 101 of the Dhammapada, and Dhammapāla's commentary to the Bāhiya Sutta. The former is in Burlingame's Buddhist Legends (and various online sources); the latter is in Peter Masefield's PTS translation of the Udāna Atthakathā.

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu
