Kasī Bhāradvāja Sutta

The Buddhist Parable of the Sower, forming the fourth sutta of the Uraga Vagga of the Suttanipāta. (Pp.12 ff; also found in the Saṃyuttanikāya (S.i.171 ff) under the name of Kasī Sutta and included in the Paritta). It contains the story of the Buddha’s visit to Kasī-Bhāradvāja. The Buddha tells him that in his work as a Teacher are to be found all the elements of a farmer’s duties: faith is the seed, insight the plough, mindfulness the ploughshare and goad, energy the burden-bearing team. The harvest produced by the sowing is nibbāna and the food ambrosia, free from suffering and sorrow.
