Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Upatthāna Sutta:1.Upatthāna Sutta.-The Buddha asks Ananda if he considers that every kind of moral practice produces like results.Ananda says they do not,and proceeds to explain his point of view.The Buddha agrees with him,and when Ananda has gone away,tells the monks that though Ananda is yet a learner (sekha),it would not be easy to find his equal in insight.A.i.225.

2.Upatthāna Sutta.-Five qualities which make an invalid difficult for anyone to look after,and the absence of which makes him a good patient.A.iii.143-4.

3.Upatthāna Sutta.-On five qualities requisite for an attendant on the sick.A.iii.144-5.

4.Upatthāna Sutta.-Record of a conversation between a deva and a monk who dwelt in a forest tract in Kosala.During his siesta the monk would often fall asleep,and the deva,wishing his welfare and desiring to agitate him,draws near and asks him not to give himself up to somnolent habits.The monk replies to the effect that once a man has obtained insight by the suppression of desire and lust,there is no need to plague himself with unnecessary exertions (S.i.197f).

According to the Commentary (SA.i.232),the monk was an arahant.He had far to go to procure food,and when he came back,tired out,he would bathe and rest.
