Right View and the Scheme of the Four Truths in Early Buddhism − The Sayukta-āgama Parallel to the Sammādihi-sutta and the Simile of the Four Skills of a Physician


By Bhikkhu Analayo





Abstract:

In the present paper I explore the significance of the realization of the four truths as the fulfilment of right view attained with stream-entry, based on a translation and study of the Sayukta- āgama parallel to the Sammādihi-sutta. For a better appreciation of the scheme of the four truths, I then turn to another discourse in the same Sayukta-āgama that compares the four truths to the medical analysis carried out by a skilful physician.
