<p>The Samyutta Nikaya, the third division of the Sutta Pitaka, contains 2,889 suttas grouped into five sections <i>(vaggas).</i> Each <i>vagga</i> is further divided into <i>samyuttas,</i> each of which in turn contains a group of suttas on related topics. The <i>samyuttas</i> are named according to the topics of the suttas they contain. For example, the Kosala Samyutta (in the Sagatha Vagga) contains suttas concerning King Pasenadi of Kosala; the Vedana Samyutta (in the Salayatana Vagga) contains suttas concerning feeling <i>(vedana);</i> and so on.

An excellent modern print translation of the complete Samyutta Nikaya is Bhikkhu Bodhi's <i>The Connected Discourses of the Buddha: A New Translation of the Samyutta Nikaya</i> (Boston: Wisdom Publications, 2000; originally published in two volumes, but now available in a single volume). A fine anthology of selected suttas is <i>Handful of Leaves</i> (Vol. 2), by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (distributed by the Sati Center for Buddhist Studies).

The suttas are numbered here by samyutta (chapter) and sutta, with the suttas numbered sequentially from the start of each samyutta, using as a guide the Rhys Davis & Woodward PTS English translations of the Samyutta Nikaya <i>(The Book of the Kindred Sayings)</i>. The braces {} that follow each sutta and samyutta title contain the corresponding volume and starting page number, first in the PTS romanized Pali edition of the Samyutta Nikaya, then in Bhikkhu Bodhi's <i>Connected Discourses of the Buddha</i> (“CDB”). The translator appears in the square brackets [].

<div class='sutta_summary'>The Buddha's second discourse, in which he discusses the principle of <i>anatta</i> (not-self) with the group of five ascetics. By means of a question-and-answer dialogue with his audience, the Buddha demonstrates that there can be no abiding self in any of the five aggregates that we tend to identify as "self." The sutta illustrates the Buddha's skillfulness as teacher: at the end of the discourse, all five monks attain full Awakening. </div>
