The Turning of the Wheel of Truth
(The Buddha's First Sermon)
Translation by Sanderson Beck
English revision by Aidan Walsh
By my recollection, I testify to having heard it spoken so, that on one occasion, the Blessed One was dwelling at Baranasi in the Deer Park at Isipatana. There He addressed the five holy men who were his earlier companions.
“There are these two extremes, venerable ones, which are to be avoided by anyone who has gone forth from the world to lead a holy life. What are the two?”
“Those activities which follow the passions and seek luxury, are low, primitive, common, shameful, and useless, as are those which are masochistic or self deprecating, which are painful, shameful, contrary, pitiful and useless.”
“Avoiding these two extremes this manifest person has gained clarified awareness of a middle path, which produces insight and knowledge, and leads to peace, wisdom, unobstructed understanding, and eternal quiescence.”
“And what, venerable ones, is this middle path, by which this manifest person gained his liberating awareness, which produces insight and knowledge, and leads to peace, wisdom, unobstructed understanding, and eternal quiescence?”
“It is a moral, eight-fold path, integrating proper understanding, proper intention, proper speech, proper action, proper livelihood, proper attention, proper concentration, and proper meditation.”
“This, venerable ones, is the middle path by which this manifest person has gained his clarity of awareness, which produces insight and knowledge, and leads to peace, wisdom, unobstructed understanding, and eternal quiescence.”
“Now, venerable ones, there is the superb and undeniable truth of dissatisfaction and pain. Birth is painful, old age is painful, sickness is painful, death is painful, sorrow, lamentation, grief, and despair are painful. Contact with unpleasant things is painful, separation from valued things is painful. In short, all things sensory are painful and therefore, all these are also intrinsically unsatisfactory.”
“Now, venerable ones, there is the superb and undeniable truth of the cause of dissatisfaction and pain being the want for life and experiences, which leads to rebirth, combined with physical pleasure and lust, and finding mental pleasure here and there, the craving after passions, the obstinate belief in a separate and independent identity, and even the craving for non-existence which re-enforces the ego.”
“Now, venerable ones, there is the superb and undeniable truth of the cessation of dissatisfaction and pain being the removal and termination of the cause, without any remainder or residue of desire, the abandonment of, discarding of, release of and objectivity towards that cause.”
“Now, venerable ones, there is the superb and undeniable truth of the path that leads to the cessation of dissatisfaction and pain. It is the moral, eightfold path, elucidated as proper understanding, proper intention, proper speech, proper action, proper livelihood, proper attention, proper concentration, and proper meditation.” ...
