56.28 Loka Sutta
The World

The Buddha is the most noble being in all the worlds, therefore the Four Noble Truths taught by him are noble.

“Monks, there are these Four Noble Truths. What four? The noble truth of suffering, the Noble Truth of the origin of suffering, the Noble Truth of the cessation of suffering, and the Noble Truth of the path that leads to the cessation of suffering. In this world with its gods, Māras, and Brahmās, this population with its recluses, its gods and humans, the Buddha is the Noble One. That’s why they’re called ‘the noble truths.’

“Therefore, monks, you should make an effort to understand: ‘This is suffering.’ You should make an effort to understand: ‘This is the origin of suffering.’ You should make an effort to understand: ‘This is the cessation of suffering.’ You should make an effort to understand: ‘This is the path that leads to the cessation of suffering.’”
