THE CHAPTER OF OCTADS US $0.00

The Aṭṭhaka Vagga, The Fourth Chapter of the Sutta Nipāta
by BHIKKHU VARADO

The Chapter of Octads (i.e. ‘chapter containing suttas with eight verses’), is the fourth chapter of the Sutta Nipāta and consists of sixteen short suttas in metrical form. In fact only four of the suttas are octads; a few of them have even twenty verses. The Buddha seems to have composed the Chapter of Octads near the beginning of his teaching career, because discussions concerning it are mentioned in other parts of the P├áli canon. The importance of the Chapter of Octads to the early monks is illustrated in a story concerning Venerable Soṇa, who recited the sixteen suttas to the Buddha one morning, having been invited by the Blessed One to share his dwelling.
