MN 077 Mahāsakuludāyi: Greater Discourse to Sakuludāyin


Some interesting features about this sutta:
It bears some similarity to DN 2, comprehensive scope of many of the practices, and very beautiful similes for most of them such as the
6 abhiñña, .

One big difference with DN 2 is it has the 8 liberations which include the 4 formless attainments, whereas I was always puzzled by the exclusion of (formless attainments)  in DN 2.

Another area this differs from DN 2 is the brief survey of the 37 aids to awakening. Here some notes to the Agama sutra parallel:
