Friends:

The 7 Links to Awakening are Unmatched!



Venerable Sāriputta once told the Buddha :
Unsurpassable is how the Blessed Buddha has taught the supreme efforts imbedded
within the Seven Links to Awakening, that is:

1: The Awareness Link to Awakening: sati-sambojjhanga.
2: The Investigation Link to Awakening: dhammavicaya-sambojjhanga.
3: The Energy Link to Awakening: viriya-sambojjhanga.
4: The Joy Link to Awakening: pīti-sambojjhanga.
5: The Tranquility Link to Awakening: passaddhi-sambojjhanga.
6: The Concentration Link to Awakening: samādhi-sambojjhanga.
7: The Equanimity Link to Awakening: upekkhā-sambojjhanga.

Venerable Sir, among all these supreme Dhamma teachings and sublime mental states,
this doctrine on the 7 links to awakening is also utterly unsurpassable!


Venerable Sāriputta Thera and Venerable Mahā Moggallāna Thera.
