Brāhmaṇa Sutta

1. Brāhmaṇa Sutta.– The Buddha explains to the monks how the teachings of the brahmins differ from his on the practice leading to prosperity. S.v.361.

2. Brāhmaṇa Sutta.– The Buddha explains, in answer to the question of a brahmin, how the Dhamma can be described as visible here and now (sandiṭṭhika). A.i.156.

3. Brāhmaṇa Sutta.– Two brahmins, skilled in philosophy (lokāyata), visit the Buddha and say that, according to Pūraṇa Kassapa, the world is finite, while, according to Nigaṇṭha Nāṭaputta, it is infinite, and that both teachers claim Omniscience. How can one know which teaching is true? The Buddha dismisses their question and teaches them that it is not by trying to walk to the end of the world that the end of the world can be reached, but by understanding the five strands of sense-desire (kāmaguṇa). This can be accomplished by the cultivation of the jhānas. A.iv.428 f.
