1. Nirodha Sutta
Sāriputta tells Ananda that he has attained to a state of
cessation of perception and feeling. S. iii.238.
2. Nirodha Sutta
Sāriputta tells the monks that one, who has achieved
virtue, concentration and insight, may both enter the cessation of perception
and feeling and also emerge there from. Udāyin (Lāludāyī), who is present,
contradicts this three times, but none upbraids him. Sāriputta's words are
repeated before the Buddha, and Udāyin acts similarly. The Buddha rebukes Ananda
for not admonishing Udāyin. Later, the Buddha talks of the matter to Upavāna and
tells him of five qualities which a monk should possess. A.iii.192ff.
