Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Uttiya or Uttika Sutta:1.Uttiya or Uttika Sutta.-Uttiya Thera visits the Buddha and asks him for an explanation of the five sensual elements (kāmagunā) mentioned by him.The Buddha explains them,and declares that they should be abandoned in order that the Noble Eightfold Path might be cultivated.S.v.22.



2.Uttiya or Uttika Sutta.-Uttiya asks the Buddha for a teaching in brief,on which he might meditate while dwelling in solitude.The Buddha tells him that he must purify ”the rudiments in good states” (ādim eva visodhehi kusalesu dhammesu),and proceeds to mention the four satipatthānas.As a result of developing the latter Uttiya became an arahant.S.v.166.



3.Uttiya or Uttika Sutta.-The Paribbājaka Uttiya visits the Buddha and asks him his views regarding the eternity of the world,the end of the world,the identity of body and soul,and the continuation of the existence of the Tathāgata after death.The Buddha replies that he teaches nothing about such things,but that the object of his teaching is to enable beings to realise emancipation.Thereupon Uttiya asks the Buddha whether the world is led to follow that teaching.The Buddha remains silent.Ananda,wishing to prevent any misunderstanding on the part of Uttiya,explains that there is no ”leading,” but that the Buddha knows that all those who escape from the world do so along a certain path,just as the gate-keeper of a well-guarded town knows that whoever enters that town must,inevitably,use the one entrance.A.v.193-5.
