Dear forum,

The Khuddaka Nikāya is comprised of:
  • Khuddakapatha
    Dhammapada
    Udana
    Itivuttaka
    Suttanipata
    Vimanavatthu
    Petavatthu
    Theragatha
    Therigatha
    Jataka
    Niddesa
    Patisambhidamagga
    Apadana
    Buddhavamsa
    Cariyapitaka
    Nettipakarana or Netti
    Petakopadesa
    Milinda Panha
Which of the above are supposed to be spoken during the Buddha's lifetime?

Thank you :smile:

Really? I only thought the Suttanipata and Thera/Therigathas were, and part of the Dhammapada. Could you post a link where the Ajahns say this? I hold them in high regard when it comes to early Buddhism.
