Isigili Sutta- The Discourse on Isigili Rock

After the completion of Paritta or Suttas compiled on the virtues of the Buddha, His Doctrine -Dharma and His disciples- Sangha the only Sutta on the virtues of Pacceka Buddhas- Silent Buddhas or those who are enlightened by themselves was promulgated by the Blessed One.

On one occasion, the Blessed One, arising from His solitude got out of Gandakiliya- the sweet scented house, and sat within the sight of Isigili Rock. Although the Buddha had no intention to tell about mountains the significance of mount Isigili was disclosed to make the Bhikkhus aware of five hundred Pacceka (Silent) Buddhas and the aspirations of Queen Padmawathie.

Five hundred silent Buddhas were seen entering the rock through the two-fold door after collecting alms but were not seen after that. People who saw this thought that the mountain had swallowed those, the sages or Isis. Hence they called it Isigili (Isi= sages and giliti=swallows).  Names of five hundred silent Buddhas are indicated in this sutta. It is said that there were tens and twelves of silent Buddhas who had the same name.

Thus have I heard: - On one occasion the Blessed One was living at mount Isigili.  Buddha addressed the monks and they replied saying “Bhante-Venerable Sir,” Thereupon He discoursed Isigili sutta.

“Do you, monks, see that Vebhara Mountain?” “Yes Bhante”. “There was another name for this Vebhara Mountain, another designation”  

“Do you, monks, see that Pandava Mountain?” “Yes Bhante”. “There was another name for this Pandava Mountain, another designation” 

“Do you, monks, see that Vepulla Mountain?” “Yes Bhante”. “There was another name for this Vepulla Mountain, another designation”   

“Do you, monks, see that Gijjhakuta Mountain?” “Yes Bhante”. “There was another name for this Gijjhakuta Mountain, another designation”   

“Do you, monks, see that Isigili Mountain?” “Yes Bhante”. “Isigili Mountain was the name used throughout. I shall tell you about certain incidents taken place in the past.”Yes Sir- Bhante.” “Five hundred Pacceka Buddhas lived for a long time at this Isigili Mountain. People had seen the Pacceka Buddhas entering the Mountain but they were not visible to the people thereafter. Hence they remarked that the mountain swallows the Pacceka Buddhas (Isis). Thus this mountain was given the name Isigili.”

“I will tell you, monks, the names of Pacceka Buddhas who lived at this Mountain.  You listen to me and reflect on what I tell you. Monks replied “ Bhante (Yes Sir)”

“Arittha was a Pacceka Buddha who lived at this mountain for a long time.
