The First Discourse of Buddha.
Having realized the Four Noble Truths - the Truth of "Dukkha" (Suffering); the Cause of Suffering; the Cessation of Suffering; and the Path leading to the Cessation of Suffering (or else the happiness) - by himself, the Buddha decided to teach it to the five ascetic Brahmins who were earlier with him at Uruvela, in Buddhagaya.

At the end of this First Discourse, which is now known as the "Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta" and given to these five ascetics Brahmins who were at that time living at Isipatana in Benares.

The oldest of ascetic Brahmins, Kondanna, who was well versed in all the Vedic scriptures was able to understand and grasp the Buddha's first Discourse "Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta" very easily with no difficulty at all. Thus becoming the first person to realise the first path and he became a Sotapanna, or one who goes against the stream of Samsara (the recurring cycle of life and death).

According to the Buddha, whatever is impermanent is subject to suffering, and the world rests on this basic factor of suffering (Dukkha), However, having accepted this fact, He goes on to teach man how to gain his release from all suffering. The tragic story of Patacara who loses her whole family within a matter of a single day and a night, points out only too well how suffering besets the unsuspecting worldling. More..
