The Lohicca Sutta is the 12th Sutta[1][2] of the Digha Nikaya.


The Sutta is a dialogue between a brahman named Lohicca and Gotama Buddha about the ethics of teaching.[3]

Name of Lohicca[edit]

The name of Lohicca only twice appears in early Pali texts: the (Sálávatiká) Lohicca Sutta (DN 12) and the (Makkarakaṭa) Lohicca Sutta (S 35.132).[4]
