Jāṇussoṇi Sutta

1. Jāṇussoṇi Sutta.– Jāṇussoṇi visits the Buddha, who tells him that it is one extreme to say that everything exists, another to say nothing exists — and teaches him the Doctrine of the Middle Way by explaining the Law of Dependent Origination (paṭiccasamuppāda). S.ii.76.

2. Jānussoṇibrāhmaṇa Sutta.– On his begging round Ānanda sees Jānussoṇi’s white chariot, drawn by four white mares, the people crowding round it and declaring it the best and most beautiful of chariots. He goes to the Buddha and asks him if such a description could be used of the Buddha. The Buddha says that the Noble Eightfold Way can be so described. S.v.4 f.

3. Jāṇussoṇi Sutta.– Jānussoṇī visits the Buddha and tells him that if anyone has gifts to distribute he should give them to the tevijja brahmins. At the Buddha’s request, he describes these brahmins, and the Buddha, in his turn, tells him what is considered the threefold-lore (tevijjā) by the Noble Ones (ariya). A.i.166.
