Preached at the Migāramātupāsāda on a full moon night. A monk asks the Buddha a series of questions regarding the five upādānakkhandhā, their origin, their definition, and also as to how notions of self come about (sakkāyaditthi). The Buddha answers him, and shows how deliverance can be attained by realization that there is no self in any khandha.
It is said that sixty monks, who heard the sutta, became arahants. M.iii.15-20.
