Bahiya sutta commentary

Post by 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:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


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
