DN10 The true and complete Dharma training: talk by Piya Tan

(Ananda) Subha Sutta (DN10)


The (Ānanda) Subha Sutta is straightforward. Soon after the Buddha’s passing, the brahmin youth Subha invites Ānanda to his house. There he asks Ānanda regarding “the teachings that the master Gotama speaks in praise of, and in what does he rouse, instill and establish these people?” [§1.5.8-9], that is, the Buddha’s key teachings for the public.
