SN 35.28: Adittapariyaya Sutta The Fire Sermon
Several months after his Awakening, the Buddha delivers this sermon to an audience of 1000 fire-worshipping ascetics. In his characteristically brilliant teaching style, the Buddha uses a metaphor that quickly penetrates to the heart of the audience - in this case, the metaphor of fire. Upon hearing this sermon, the entire audience attains full Awakening (arahatta).

BOOKS


Mind Like Fire Unbound: An Image in the Early Buddhist Discourses, (4th edition, 2010), by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (Geoffrey DeGraff)

“Early Buddhism borrowed two of its central terms from the workings of fire. Upadana, or clinging, originally referred to the fuel that kept fire burning; nibbana, the name of the goal, to a fire's going out. This is the first book to examine these terms from the perspective of how the early Buddhists themselves viewed fire — what they saw happening as a fire burned, and what happened to the fire when it went out — to show what light this perspective throws on Buddhist doctrine in general, and the practice of meditation in particular. With extensive quotations from the Pali Canon, newly translated, this is also a useful sourcebook for anyone who wants to encounter Buddhist teachings in their earliest known context.
To request a printed copy of this book, please write to: Metta Forest Monastery, P.O. Box 1409, Valley Center, California CA 92082, USA.”
