Ajahn Brahmali discusses the 28th sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya: the Mahahatthipadopama Sutta, “The Greater Discourse on the Simile of the Elephant’s Footprint”.

Read MN28 here on Sutta Central.

“Sariputta gives an elaborate demonstration of how, just as any footprint can fit inside an elephant’s, all the Buddha’s teachings can fit inside the four noble truths. This offers an overall template for organising the Buddha’s teachings,” Sutta Central.
