Three marvels are
ascribed to the Buddha:
the marvel of magic (iddhi-p.),
the marvel of
mind-reading (ādesanā-p.) and
the marvel of instruction (anusāsanī-p.).
In D.11, the Buddha says that he sees danger in the first two and therefore
In A.III.61, the 'marvel of instruction' is called the one 'more
noble and sublime'.
For iddhi-pātihāriya, see D.25.
