Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kālaka Sutta:Preached by the Buddha at Kālakārāma inSāketa when he visited the city at the request ofCūla-Subhaddā (AA.ii.482f).

The Tathāgata knows and comprehends whatsoever is seen,heard,comprised,attained,searched into,etc.,in the whole world,but he is not subject to it (A.ii.24f).

This sutta is sometimes referred to as the Kālakārāma Sutta (E.g.,ThagA.i.284).It is said that at the conclusion of the Kālakārāma Sutta the earth trembled,as though bearing witness to the Buddha’s statement (DA.i.130-1).

It was this sutta which helped Mahārakkhita to convert the country of the Yonakas (Sp.i.67; Mhv.xii.39; Mbv.114; Dpv.viii.9).

The sutta was also preached by Kāla Buddharakkhita at the Cetiyapabbata to a concourse of people,among whom King Tissa (probably Saddhā-Tissa) was also present.MA.i.470.

Kālaka(-bhikkhu) Sutta.-A discourse delivered by the Buddha (Kālakam bhikkhum ārabbha - see Kālaka 4).

It deals with ten dispositions which if present in a monk prevent his being loved or respected,and from being apt to meditate or to lead an ascetic and lonely life,and with the ten opposite dispositions.A.v.164ff.On the name see A.v.176,n.7; also GS.v.110,n.1.
