  1. Goss Phong

    The First Discourse of the Buddha, also known as the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta, is a foundational teaching in Buddhism that outlines the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. The discourse takes place in a deer park near Benares where the Buddha delivers his first sermon to five former companions who had previously abandoned him. In the discourse, the Buddha explains that suffering is a universal experience and that the cause of suffering is craving or desire. He then outlines the path to liberation, which involves developing right understanding, intention, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration. This discourse is considered one of the most important and profound teachings of the Buddha and provides a roadmap for spiritual seekers to attain freedom from suffering.
