Ajahn Brahm discusses sutta 56.11 from the Samyutta Nikaya: Dhammacakkapavattana Sutta – The Discourse Setting in Motion the Wheel of Dhamma.

“The famous first discourse, taught at Varanasi to the group of five ascetics. It begins by rejecting the extremes of asceticism and indulgence and recommends the middle way of the eightfold path. Then it defines the four noble truths and analyzes them in twelve aspects. It ends with Venerable Kondañña becoming the first person apart from the Buddha to realize the Dhamma.” Sutta Central.
