MN31. The Shorter Discourse at Gosinga - Cūḷagosiṅga Sutta

This episode is the 31st Sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya, The Cūḷagosiṅga Sutta, which translates as “the shorter discourse at Gosinga”. In this sutta the Buddha comes across three mendicants practicing diligently and harmoniously, and asks them how they do it. Reluctant to disclose their higher attainments, they explain how they deal with the practical affairs of living together. But when pressed by the Buddha, they reveal their meditation attainments.

This translation of the Cūḷagosiṅga Sutta is by Bhikkhu Sujato and was sourced from Sutta Central.

If you'd like to understand more about this sutta you could listen to a sutta study class led by Ajahn Brahmali about this sutta.
