  • Nānātitthiya Sutta

Various devaputtas -  followers of different teachers -  come to the Buddha and sing the praises of their respective teachers -

  • Asama the praises of Purana Kassapa,
  • Sahalj of Makkhali Gosāla;
  • Ninka of Nigantha Nātaputta and
  • Akotaka of all three.

Vetambarī makes rejoinder to Akotaka and Māra agrees with him, while Mānava-Gāmiya sings the Buddha's praises. S. i.65ff.
