56.30 Gavampati Sutta
Venerable Gavampati Thero

When we see and understand one of the Noble Truths, do we understand the other three as well?

In those days, several monks were living in the province of Ceti, at the city of Sahajāti. One day, after the day’s meal, on return from alms round, several senior monks sat together in the pavilion and this discussion came up,

“Venerables, does someone who sees suffering also see the origin of suffering, the cessation of suffering, and the path that leads to the cessation of suffering?”

When they asked this, Venerable Gavampati said to those senior monks,

“Venerables, I have heard and learned this from the Buddha, ‘Someone who sees suffering also sees the origin of suffering, the cessation of suffering, and the path that leads to the cessation of suffering. Someone who sees the origin of suffering also sees suffering, the cessation of suffering, and the path that leads to the cessation of suffering. Someone who sees the cessation of suffering also sees suffering, the origin of suffering, and the path that leads to the cessation of suffering. Someone who sees the path that leads to the cessation of suffering also sees suffering, the origin of suffering, and the cessation of suffering.’”
