Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta - The Great Discourse on the Wheel of Dhamma
Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta ? The Great Discourse on the Wheel of Dhamma by Mahsi Sayadaw also known as the Dharmacakra Pravartana S?tra is a central discourse in which the Buddha addresses five monks who attended to him just before to his final liberation. The Buddha instructs the monks not pursue either of two extremes: worldly pleasures or painful self-mortification. This approach text has been the origin of the Buddhist concept of The Middle Way. The Buddha explains that the middle way involves pursuing a ?Noble Eightfold Path? that includes right understanding, intention, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness and concentration. This path leads to vision, knowledge, peace, enlightenment and Nibbana.
