Paccanīka Sutta.– Once the brahmin Paccanīkasāta of Sāvatthi visited the Buddha and asked him to recite a doctrine.

Paccanīkasāta.– A brahmin of Sāvatthi, to whom the Buddha refused to teach (see Paccanīka Sutta). Buddhaghosa says (SA.i.205) that the Brahmin was so called (“Gainsayer”) because he took delight in opposing everything that anyone else said.

Paccorohanī Vagga.– The twelfth section of the Dassaka Nipāta of the Aṅguttaranikāya (A.v.222‑37). One of the suttas deals with the “spiritual coming down again” (paccorohani); hence, probably the name of the Vagga.
