buddhateaching The #Buddha arrives at a stage of #knowledge of the #universe that is vast, leaving nothing left to explore, but has as its goal the reform of the forces of the universe rather than simply the comprehensive knowledge of them. The Buddha's extensive teaching has been preserved in the #Pali literature (Tipiṭaka). In one of his discourses the Buddha succinctly describes the extent of his knowledge:
"Bhikkhus, the world has been discovered by the Tathagata; the Tathagata is dissociated from the world. The origin of the world has been discovered by the Tathagata; the Tathagata has abandoned the origin of the world. The cessation of the world has been discovered by the Tathagata; the Tathāgata has realized the cessation of the world. The way leading to the cessation of the world has been discovered by the Tathagata; the Tathagata has established the way leading to the cessation of the world.
In the world with its devas, its maras, its brahmas, its ascetics and brahmins, its devas and humans, whatever, bhikkhus, can be seen, heard, sensed, cognized, or reached, sought out and encompassed by the mind has been discovered by the Tathagata" [Lokasuttam KN, Itivuttaka 85, PTS 122].
This bold statement about the Buddha’s knowledge of the world echoes the formula he uses when he declares the #FourNobleTruths, the most fundamental statement of his teaching for the world, in which he sets out in the most basic terms the purpose of his quest: to find an end to dukkha (#suffering). Here he substitutes the word "Loka" (world) for the more familiar word (dukkha). He then goes on to claim full and complete familiarity with the world, its origin, its cessation and the means to its #cessation.
The Buddha spoke about the world often and in diverse situations. In fact, in the Buddha-vandana (Homage to the Buddha), which is traditionally chanted in the morning at #meditation courses and in #monasteries and #temples everywhere one of the several epithets of the Buddha that is mentioned is that he is "lokavidu" that is, he is one who knows the #universe. And yet, having declared that he possesses such complete knowledge of the world, he also states,that he does not reveal all he knows.
