Sermon to the Kassapas

Previous | Home | Next


After the three-months of Vassa, the Buddha met with his 60 disciples at the Isipatana Forest. He told them to travel separately to announce his teachings. The Buddha then traveled to Uruvera Village, where he met three brothers, Uruvela Kassapa, Nadi Kassapa, Gaya Kassapa, as well as their 1000 disciples. The Buddha gave a sermon after which we are told the brothers and their followers attained arahant and soon after became bhikkhus.
