A depiction of the first teaching of the Buddha from a Vietnamese Buddhist monastery in Quebec, Canada.
Retaining the oldest teachings Edit
scholars agree that the teachings of the Buddha were passed down in an
oral tradition for approximately a few hundred years after the passing
of the Buddha; the first written recordings of these teachings were made
hundreds of years after the Buddha’s passing. According to academic
scholars, inconsistencies in the oldest texts may reveal developments in
the oldest teachings.[note 3] While the Theravada tradition holds
that it is likely that the sutras date back to the Buddha himself, in an
unbroken chain of oral transmission,[web 2][web 3][note 4] academic
scholars have identified many of such inconsistencies, and tried to
explain them. Information of the oldest teachings of Buddhism, such as
on the Four Noble Truths, which are an important topic in the
Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta, has been obtained by analysis of the oldest
texts and these inconsistencies, and are a matter of ongoing discussion
and research.[note 5]
Development of the sutta Edit
to Bronkhorst this “first sermon” is recorded in several sutras, with
important variations.[note 6] In the Vinaya texts, and in the
Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta which was influenced by the Vinaya texts,
the four truths are included, and Kondañña is enlightened when
the “vision of Dhamma” arises in him: “whatever is subject to
origination is all subject to cessation.”[note 7] Yet, in the
Ariyapariyesanā Sutta (”The Noble Search”, Majjhima Nikaya 26) the four
truths are not included,[note 8] and the Buddha gives the five ascetics
personal instructions in turn, two or three of them, while the others go
out begging for food. The versions of the “first sermon” which include
the four truths, such as the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta, omit this
instruction, showing that
…the accounts which include the Four
Noble Truths had a completely different conception of the process of
liberation than the one which includes the Four Dhyanas and the
subsequent destruction of the intoxicants.
Bronkhorst, this indicates that the four truths were later added to
earlier descriptions of liberation by practicing the four dhyanas, which
originally was thought to be sufficient for the destruction of the
arsavas. Anderson, following Norman, also thinks that the four
truths originally were not part of this sutta, and were later added in
some versions.[note 9] According to Bronkhorst, the “twelve
insights” are probably also a later addition, born out of unease with
the substitution of the general term “prajna” for the more specific
The “essence” of Buddhism Edit
to Cousins, many scholars are of the view that “this discourse was
identified as the first sermon of the Buddha only at a later date.”
According to Richard Gombrich,
Of course we do not really know
what the Buddha said in his first sermon […] and it has even been
convincingly demonstrated[note 10] that the language of the text as we
have it is in the main a set of formulae, expressions which are by no
means self-explanatory but refer to already established doctrines.
Nevertheless, the compilers of the Canon put in the first sermon what
they knew to be the very essence of the Buddha’s Enlightenment.
the understanding of what exactly constituted this “very essence” also
developed over time. What exactly was regarded as the central insight
“varied along with what was considered most central to the teaching of
the Buddha.” “Liberating insight” came to be defined as “insight
into the four truths,” which is presented as the “liberating insight”
which constituted the awakening, or “enlightenment” of the Buddha. When
he understood these truths he was “enlightened” and liberated,[note 11]
as reflected in Majjhima Nikaya 26:42: “his taints are destroyed by his
seeing with wisdom.” The four truths were superseded by
pratityasamutpada, and still later by the doctrine of the non-existence
of a substantial self or person.
According to Anderson, a
long recognized feature of the Theravada canon is that it lacks an
“overarching and comprehensive structure of the path to nibbana.”
The sutras form a network or matrix, which have to be taken
together.[note 12] Within this network, “the four noble truths are
one doctrine among others and are not particularly central,” but are
a part of “the entire dhamma matrix.” The four noble truths are set
and learnt in that network, learning “how the various teachings
intersect with each other,” and refer to the various Buddhist
techniques, which are all explicitly and implicitly part of the passages
which refer to the four truths. According to Anderson,
is no single way of understanding the teachings: one teaching may be
used to explain another in one passage; the relationship may be reversed
or altered in other talks.
Translations into English Edit

the Pāli Canon, this sutta is found in the Samyutta Nikaya, chapter 56
(”Saccasamyutta” or “Connected Discourses on the Truths”), sutta number
11 (and, thus, can be referenced as “SN 56.11″). There are multiple

translation of one of two versions of the Dharma Wheel Sutra in Tibetan,
known as the ‘Missing Translator’s Colophon’ version (Tib: ‘gyur byang

Turning the Dharma Wheel. This is a translation from the Chinese canon;
the Chinese version is based on the Sarvastivadin Sanskrit version of
the text (Dharmacakra Pravartana Sutra).
Thich Nhat Hanh has produced
a notable rendering of the first teaching of the Buddha in his
biography of the Buddha entitled Old Path White Clouds. Thich Nhat
Hanh relied on multiple sources for this rendering. This rendering
is also included in Thich Nhat Hanh’s book Path of Compassion: Stories
from the Buddha’s Life. See Turning the Wheel of Dharma
chapter of the Lalitavistara Sutra contains a Mahayana version of the
first turning that closely parallels the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta.

^ According to Schmithausen, three positions held
by scholars of Buddhism can be distinguished regarding the possibility
to retain knowledge of the oldest Buddhism:
“Stress on the
fundamental homogeneity and substantial authenticity of at least a
considerable part of the Nikayic materials;”[subnote 1]
“Scepticism with regard to the possibility of retrieving the doctrine of earliest Buddhism;”[subnote 2]
“Cautious optimism in this respect.”[subnote 3]
The Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta is best-known from the Pāli Canon,
Saṃyutta Nikāya chapter 56, sutta 11. In the Chinese Buddhist canon
there are numerous editions of this sutra from a variety of different
schools in ancient India, including the Sarvāstivāda, Dharmaguptaka, and
Mahīśāsaka, as well as an edition translated as early as 170 by the
early Parthian missionary An Shigao. Parallel texts can be found in
other early Buddhist sources as well, such as the Sarvāstivādin
Lalitavistara Sūtra and the Lokottaravādin Mahāvastu.[web 4]

intent on striving.’ And I sat down there thinking: ‘This will serve
for striving.’ According to Bhikkhu Bodhi Majjhima Nikaya 36 then
continuous with the extreme ascetic practices, which are omitted in MN
26. In verse 18, the Buddha has attained Nirvana, being secured from
bondage by birth, ageing, sickness and death, referring to the truths
of dependent origination and “the stilling of all formations, the
relinquishing of all attachments, the destruction of craving,
^ According to Cousins, Anderson
misunderstands Norman in this respect, but does “not think that this
misunderstanding of Norman’s position critically affects Anderson’s
thesis. Even if these arguments do not prove that the four truths are
definitely a later insertion in the Dhammacakkapavattana-sutta, it is
certainly possible to take the position that the sutta itself is
^ Gombrich includes an end note here citing “Norman 1982″ (.
“Enlightenment” is a typical western term, which bears its own,
specific western connotations, meanings and interpretations.
Gethin: “The word satya (Pali sacca) can certainly mean truth, but it
might equally be rendered as ‘real’ or ‘actual thing’. That is, we are
not dealing here with propositional truths with which we must either
agree or disagree, but with four ‘true things’ or ‘realities’ whose
nature, we are told, the Buddha finally understood on the night of his
awakening. […] This is not to say that the Buddha’s discourses do not
contain theoretical statements of the nature of suffering, its cause,
its cessation, and the path to its cessation, but these descriptions
function not so much as dogmas of the Buddhist faith as a convenient
conceptual framework for making sense of Buddhist thought.”
^ Well-known proponents of the first position are:
A.K. Warder. According to A.K. Warder, in his 1970 publication “Indian
Buddhism”, from the oldest extant texts a common kernel can be drawn
out, namely the Bodhipakkhiyādhammā. According to Warder, c.q. his
publisher: “This kernel of doctrine is presumably common Buddhism of the
period before the great schisms of the fourth and third centuries BC.
It may be substantially the Buddhism of the Buddha himself, although
this cannot be proved: at any rate it is a Buddhism presupposed by the
schools as existing about a hundred years after the parinirvana of the
Buddha, and there is no evidence to suggest that it was formulated by
anyone else than the Buddha and his immediate followers.”
Richard Gombrich: “I have the greatest difficulty in accepting that the
main edifice is not the work of a single genius. By “the main edifice” I
mean the collections of the main body of sermons, the four Nikāyas, and
of the main body of monastic rules.”
^ A proponent of the second
position is Ronald Davidson: “While most scholars agree that there was a
rough body of sacred literature (disputed)(sic) that a relatively early
community (disputed)(sic) maintained and transmitted, we have little
confidence that much, if any, of surviving Buddhist scripture is
actually the word of the historic Buddha.”
^ Well-known proponent of the third position are:
J.W. de Jong: “It would be hypocritical to assert that nothing can be
said about the doctrine of earliest Buddhism […] the basic ideas of
Buddhism found in the canonical writings could very well have been
proclaimed by him [the Buddha], transmitted and developed by his
disciples and, finally, codified in fixed formulas.”
Bronkhorst: “This position is to be preferred to (ii) for purely
methodological reasons: only those who seek may find, even if no success
