Long Agama Sutra, Vol. 1

Quotes from the Long Agama Sutra

 

"The Buddha gradually explained on the benefits of the principle of giving, on the principle of precept observance, on the principle of rebirth in the heavenly realms, on the impure nature of our desires, on the flaws of taking rebirth in the upper realms. The Buddha rejoiced those who transcend the three realms to be the unexcelled ones with wondrous tranquility and purity. At the time, the World-Honored One saw the gentle and harmonious nature of the two disciples who willingly embraced the correct Dharma with joy and faith; He then started to delineate the noble truth of suffering, the noble truth of the origination of suffering, the noble truth of the cessation of suffering, and the noble truth of renunciation extensively."

《長阿含經》卷1

 

「佛漸為說法,示教利喜:施論、戒論、生天之論,欲為不淨,上漏為患,讚歎出離為最微妙清淨第一。爾時,世尊見此二人心意柔輭,歡喜信樂,堪受正法,於是即為說苦聖諦,敷演開解,分布宣釋苦集聖諦、苦滅聖諦、苦出要諦。」
