55.5 Sāriputta Sutta
With Sāriputta 2

Arahant Sāriputta has a Dhamma discussion with the Supreme Buddha.

One day Venerable Sāriputta went to the Buddha, bowed respectfully, and sat down to one side. The Buddha asked him, “Sāriputta, in the Dhamma, there are factors leading to stream-entry. What are those factors leading to stream-entry?”

“Bhante, the factors leading to stream-entry are associating with good people, listening to the Dhamma, wise consideration, and practicing in line with the Dhamma.”

“Good, good, Sāriputta! The factors leading to stream-entry are associating with good people, listening to the Dhamma, wise consideration, and practicing in line with the teachings.

“Sāriputta, in the Dhamma, it’s said ‘the stream’. What is this stream?”

“Bhante, the stream is a synonym for this Noble Eightfold Path, which is: right view, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration.”

“Good, good, Sāriputta! The stream is a synonym for this Noble Eightfold Path, which is: right view, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration.

“Sāriputta, in the Dhamma, it’s said ‘a stream-enterer’. What is a stream-enterer?”

“Bhante, anyone who possesses this Noble Eightfold Path is called a stream-enterer, the person of such name and such clan.”
