Ajahn Brahm discusses sutta 27 from the Digha Nikaya: Aggañña Sutta, “On Knowledge of Beginnings” or “The Origin of the World.”

Read DN27 here on Sutta Central.

“In contrast with the Brahmin’s self-serving mythologies of the past, the Buddha presents an account of evolution that shows how human choices are an integral part of the ecological balance, and how excessive greed destroys the order of nature,” Sutta Central.
