Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Aranavibhanga Sutta:The 139th Sutta of the Majjhima Nikāya.It was preached at Jetavana and contains a statement and an exposition of the middle path of peace between the two extremes of pleasures of sense - low,ignoble and unprofitable - and self-mortification,also painful and unprofitable.The path is the Noble Eightfold Path:in preaching the doctrine the preacher should neither appreciate nor depreciate it,he should teach the truth in abstract terms of general principle.He should not be a tale-teller nor confront anyone with improper remarks; he should speak slowly and not hurriedly; he should neither affect provincialisms in speech nor depart from recognised parlance.

At the end of the discourse a young man,Subhūti,is praised because he walked where calm dwelt (M.iii.230-7; MA.ii.977-8).
