The Samyutta Nikaya ("Connected Discourses") is the third of the five nikayas, or collections, in the Sutta Pitaka, which is one of the "three baskets" that compose the Pali Tipitaka. This nikaya contains 2,889 suttas grouped into five vaggas, or sections. Each vagga is further divided into samyuttas, or chapters, each of which in turn contains a group of suttas on a related topic.

Divisions

The vaggas contained in this nikaya are:

  • Sagatha-vagga
  • Nidana-vagga
  • Khandha-vagga
  • Salayatana-vagga
  • Maha-vagga
