Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Vijaya Sutta:The eleventh sutta of the Sutta Nipāta.

According to Buddhaghosa (SNA.i.241f),this sutta was preached on two occasions:once to Janapadakalyānī Nandā,following her attainment of sotāpatti,in order to help her to higher attainment - and again when the Buddha took the monks to the funeral of Sirimā,sister of Jīvaka.The sutta is also called the Kāyavicchandanika Sutta

The sutta is a discourse on the foul nature of the body,full of impurities flowing in nine streams; when dead,nobody cares for it.Only a monk,possessed of wisdom,understands it and reflects on its worthlessness.SN.vs.193-206; cf.J.i.146.
