Sati Center: Sutta Study – The Supreme Net Taught by Andrea Fella

Friday, April 30, 9:30am to 1pm

During this class we will study the Brahmajala Sutta, the first discourse from the Digha Nikaya. In this profound discourse, the Buddha describes sixty-two speculative views about the nature of the self and the world. All these speculative views are shown to lead away from freedom; the Buddha points to the craving and agitation that underlie them. Finally, the Buddha teaches the way out of the net of speculative views through the development of wisdom. A translation of this sutta can be found online at: http://www.knowbuddhism.info/2009/01/what-teaching-is-not-brahmajala-sutta.html
