Description

The Dialogues of the Buddha, constituting, in the Pali text, the Digha and Magghima Nikayas, contain a full exposition of what the early Buddhists considered the teaching of the Buddha to have been.

The Dialogues of the Buddha, constituting, in the Pali text, the Digha and Magghima Nikayas, contain a full exposition of what the early Buddhists considered the teaching of the Buddha to have been. Incidentally they contain a large number of references to the social, political, and religious condition of India at the social, political, and religious condition of India at the time when they were put together. We do not know for certain what that time exactly was. But every day is adding to the number of the date may be based. And the ascertained facts are already sufficient to give us a fair working hypothesis.

The Buddha, like other Indian teachers of his time, taught by conversation. A highly educated man, speaking constantly to men of similar education, he followed the literary habit of his time by embodying his doctrines in set phrases, sutras, on which he enlarged on different occasions in different ways. These particulars ones were not in Sanskrit, but in the ordinary conversational idiom of the day, that is to say, in a sort of Pali.

When the Buddha died these sayings were collected together by his disciples into the Four Great Nikayas.
