3.5 Kolita Sutta
Arahant Moggallāna

The Buddha sees Venerable Mahā Moggallāna in meditation.

This is what I heard from the Blessed One. Those days, the Blessed One was living in the province of Sāvatthī, at Jeta’s Park, at Anāthapiṇḍika’s monastery. One day Venerable Mahā Moggallāna was sitting not far from the Blessed One, his legs crossed, his body held upright. His mindfulness regarding the body was well established within. The Blessed One saw Venerable Mahā Moggallāna sitting not far away, his legs crossed, his body held upright. His mindfulness regarding the body was well established within.

Then, on realizing the benefit of liberation, the Blessed One spoke the following inspired verses:

“His mindfulness is well established regarding the body. The six sense bases of contact are fully restrained. His mind is always unified. Such a monk knows very well the nature of Nibbāna which he has achieved.”
