We are pleased to present a short and yet a precise Sutta of the Lord Buddha. In this Sutta a person of a high cast comes to Buddha and asks whether the value and the benefits of the spiritual Path could be experienced in the present, here and now. In this Sutta the Buddha explains as to how it could be experienced – here and now by the ardent practitioner.

The Path can be experienced as when travelling to the mountains on a straight road

This Sutta was explained by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero during a three day meditation retreat conducted at Auckland, New Zealand. The Sutta is from Anguttara Nikaya, Tika Nipatha and Brahmana Vagga of the Sutta Pitaka. Please click here to download a PDF of the Sutta from Buddha Jayanthi Tripitaka.
