Yes, MN 117 Great Forty. But don’t worry about it too much yet. Once you have Right view, everything will go automatically. That means you just need effort to develop and identify which is path or not.
This mean Right view will lead to right orientation, right speech, right conducts, … , right Samadhi. Then the Right knowledge and Right freedom.
How can one get a right view?
2 conditions for Right view to arises per MN 43Mahāvedalla Sutta:
- the words of another (from an Ariya) – when Ariya speak about dhamma you need to pay attention with your ear.
- Focus attention to the source (yoniso manasikara)
Also, SN 55.5 2nd Sariputta Sutta
Sir, the factors of stream-entry are: associating with good people, listening to the true teaching, focus attention to the source, and practicing in line with the teaching.”
Also, an Ariya will be able to identify another Ariya. But a Phutujjana (common worldling) can’t identify/see any Ariya. See MN 2 Sabbāsavasutta:
… Take an uneducated common worldling who has not seen the noble ones, and is neither skilled nor trained in the teaching of the noble ones. They’ve not seen good persons, and are neither skilled nor trained in the teaching of the good persons. …
… But take an educated noble devotee who has seen the other noble devotees, and is skilled and trained in the teaching of the noble ones. They’ve seen good persons, and are skilled and trained in the teaching of the good persons.
Also Read MN 56 Upali Sutta, how Upali, a householder, attained a Right view:
Then the Buddha taught the householder Upāli step by step, with a talk on giving, ethical conduct, and heaven. He explained the drawbacks of sensual pleasures, so sordid and corrupt, and the benefit of renunciation.
And when he knew that Upāli’s mind was ready, pliable, rid of hindrances, elated, and confident he explained the special teaching of the Buddhas: this is dukkha, this is source of dukkha, this is the cessation of dukkha, and this is the path that lead to cessation of dukkha.
Just as a clean cloth rid of stains would properly absorb dye, in that very seat the stainless, immaculate vision of the Dhamma arose in Upāli:
“yaṁ kiñci samudayadhammaṁ sabbaṁ taṁ nirodhadhamman”ti.
Then Upāli saw, attained, understood, and fathomed the Dhamma. He went beyond doubt, got rid of indecision, and became self-assured and independent of others regarding the Teacher’s instructions.
Short answer: No Right View and They haven’t broken any of the 10 fetters. Long Answer, I can provide a long list. But it is not important.
Buddha mentioned it in many Sutta such as MN 26 Pasarasi Sutta:
For Alara Kalama:
But it occurred to me: ‘This Dhamma does not lead to disenchantment, to dispassion, to cessation, to peace, to direct knowledge, to awakening, to Nibbāna, but only to reappearance in the base of nothingness. Not being satisfied with that Dhamma, disappointed with it, I left.’
For Udaka Ramaputta:
But it occurred to me: This Dhamma does not lead to disenchantment, to dispassion, to cessation, to peace, to direct knowledge, to awakening, to Nibbāna, but only to reappearance in the base of neither-perception-nor-non-perception.’ Not being satisfied with that Dhamma, disappointed with it, I left.
He reached 1st Jhana which is an Ariya Jhana (Samma Samadhi). There is no suppression in Ariya Jhana. Knowledge can arise in an Ariya Jhana. One who has Strong Sati can remember past events easily.
How can he reached 1st Jhana? then look at MN 81 Ghatikara Sutta and SN 1.50 Ghatikara Sutta, you will understand Buddha Gotama was a devotee of Buddha Kassapa in the past. He was an Ariya. His old friend, Ghatikara, visited him.
Such was the meeting that took place
Between those friends from the past,
Both now inwardly developed,
Bearers of their final bodies.
God of Ghatikara was a non-returner in Pure Abodes, and Buddha Gotama was an Arahant/ Samma SamBuddha. Both has their final bodies.
As described before, An Ariya who has Right view is independent of others. No need teacher to teach them. So, a Bodhisatta on his way to reach Arahanta-Phala, they don’t need anyone to tell them. They will reach the freedom independently once the conditions have been met.
Also read AN 4.127 1st Tathāgata Acchariya Sutta, A Bodhisatta is fully aware of one existence after another.
… When the being intent on awakening passes away from the host of Joyful Gods, he’s conceived in his mother’s womb, mindful and aware.
… Furthermore, the being intent on awakening emerges from his mother’s womb, mindful and aware.
One who has Right view has a mind which slope towards Nibbana as described in many Sutta. He know Nibbana, but he needs to fully develop the complete path (Ariyan 8fold path).
Then, He basically let go of everythings. Then, his mind calm right away. Then, he verified with his previous knowledges from Buddha Kassapa etc.
Right view is understanding SN 56.11 or MN 9 Samma Ditthi Sutta. It looks easy, but not many people penetrate these Sutta.
All Buddha Teaching relate to 4 Noble Truth and/or Dependent of Origination.
Hope this help!
