SN.45.38. Dutiyabrahmaññasutta ("The Brahmin Life, 2nd")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

“Mendicants, I will teach you life as a brahmin and the goal of life as a brahmin. Listen …

And what is life as a brahmin? It is simply this noble eightfold path, that is: right view, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right immersion. This is called life as a brahmin.

And what is the goal of life as a brahmin? The ending of greed, hate, and delusion. This is called the goal of life as a brahmin.”
