Teacher/God/Goddess

Teacher/God/Goddess

In the canonical formula for contemplation of the Buddha, nine epithets of the Awakened One are mentioned.

One of these, likely to be overlooked, is sattha devamanussanam, “teacher of gods and humans.” The present essay focuses on one aspect of this epithet: the Buddha’s role as teacher of the devas or gods. In the pages to follow we will carefully consider the instructions and techniques he used when teaching beings of divine stature.
