Untraced suttas

Post by Faelig » Sat Nov 05, 2016 2:27 pm

Dear all,

I came across the following passage in the Visuddhimagga (Bhikkhu Ñanamoli's Path of Purification, page 106):
And this is said in answer to the question of Sopáka: “Perception of visible forms is quite clear, Blessed One, perception of bones is not clear” (Source untraced29)
The corresponding note is:
29. Also quoted in A-a V 79 on AN 11:9. Cf. Sn 1119. A similar quotation with Sopáka is found in Vism-mhþ 334–35, see note 1 to XI.2.
It seems that there are quite a few untraced suttas and untraced commentaries buried in the various commentaries and treatises. Do you know of any website or book listing and/or analysing all these untraced suttas?

Having tried to look this up in the past, I think "UA" is the citation tradition for untraced sutttas. These two papers here have citations of untraced suttas, and they use "UA" as their citation. There are a quite a few of them.
神足示現者,
世尊隨其所應,而示現入禪定正受,陵虛至東方,作四威儀,
行、住、坐、臥,入火三昧,出種種火光,青、黃、赤、白、
紅、頗梨色,水火俱現, 或身下出火,身上出水,身上出火,
身下出水,周圓四方亦復如是。

That's Udana-Atthakatha.
