The collection of discourses in the Sutta Pitaka known as Samyutta Nikaya has 7,762 suttas of varied length, generally short, arranged in a special order according to subject matter into five major divisions. This first division, the Sagatha vagga, contains eleven samyuttas with discourses grouped according to characters appearing in them, the king of devas, the devas, the Brahma, Mara, King of Kosala, bhikkhus and bhikkhunis. The word Sagatha is derived from the fact that various personalities appearing in the discourses conducted their dialogues or interviews with the Buddha mostly in verse.
The PTS Pali edition is called Samyutta-nikaya, Vol I
