Buddha promises Apsaras with pink feet

Post by webu » Sat Aug 26, 2017 5:39 pm

Hello all! I recall having read in this forum somewhere that there's one sutta in which the Buddha promises someone who is infatuated with lust Apsaras with pink feet, if he attains nibbāna. After reaching it though, the aspirant says he has found something far better.
Does anyone know which sutta this story is from?
Thanks alot! :anjali:

Actually if he achieves heaven.
Buddha has said, "As even a little excrement is of evil smell, I do not praise even the shortest spell of existence, be it no longer than a snap of the fingers."
