Bahiya sutta commentary

Post by bodom »

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:
With no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

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

If ye thus walk in them, Māra will find no lodgement, Māra will find no foothold.”
