A Study of the Pārāyanavagga

Taught by Sujato Bhikkhu.

The Sutta Nipata culminates with a moving series of questions from sixteen brahmins to the Buddha, wrapped in a devotional narrative. It is unique in its literary form and emotional impact, and the questions by the brahmin students reveal them to be advanced practitioners with a sincere desire to learn. The chapter is quoted in the Suttas themselves, and remains a touchstone to this day. In this course, Bhante Sujato will read and comment from his own translation. The course aims to convey both the emotional uplift and incisive analysis of this foundational work.
