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?

:namaste:
This is our foundation: to have sati, recollection, and sampajañña, self-awareness, whether standing, walking, sitting, or reclining. Whatever arises, just leave it be, don't cling to it. Be it like or dislike, happiness or suffering, doubt or certainty... Don't try to label everything, just know it. See that all the things that arise in the mind are simply sensations. They are transient. They arise, exist and cease. That's all there is to them, they have no self or being, they are neither ''us'' nor ''them.'' They are not worthy of clinging to, any of them. - Ajahn Chah

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
