Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Cunda Sutta:1.Cunda Sutta.-Cunda Kammāraputta visits the Buddha in his Mango-grove in Pāvā and questions him as to how many classes of recluses there are in the world.Four,answers the Buddha - maggajina,maggadesaka,maggajīvī and maggadūsī - and proceeds to explain them (SN.vs.83-90; SNA.i.159ff).The circumstances in which the sutta was preached are given s.v.Cunda (1).



2.Cunda Sutta (also called Mahā Cunda Sutta).-Preached by Mahā Cunda at Sahajātī to the assembled monks.Some,who are zealous about the Dhamma,speak disparagingly of those who are given to jhāna and vice versa.Sometimes it happens that those who are engaged in the Dhamma praise their fellows,and similarly with those devoted to jhāna.None of these things are profitable.Dhamma-zealots should learn to praise those eager for jhāna and vice versa (A.iii.355f).



3.Cunda Sutta.-Mahā Cunda tells the monks at Sahajātī how it is possible to distinguish true statements from false when made by a monk about himself and his attainments (A.v.41ff).



4.Cunda Sutta.-Cunda Samanuddesa comes to Jetavana from Nālagāmaka,where he had attended Sāriputta during his last illness,and reports his death to Ananda,producing,at the same time,Sāriputta’s bowl and outer robe and the water-strainer containing his relies.Ananda accompanies Cunda to the Buddha,where he breaks the news.The Buddha praises Sāriputta’s attainments and takes the opportunity of emphasising the impermanence of all things.S.v.161ff
