Preached, seven days after the first sermon, to Nālaka,
nephew of Asita.
The sutta itself is a discourse on the state of a recluse (Moneyyapatipadā),
but there are twenty introductory verses (called Vatthugāthā) giving the story
of Asita and Nālaka (Sn.vs. 679 723; SnA.ii.501).
The sutta is also called Nālaka paopadā. (J.i.55).
