|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．
