“There are, O monks, these four lights. What four? The light of the moon, the light of the sun, the light of fire, and the light of wisdom. Of these four lights, the light of wisdom is supreme.”

The Basic Teaching of Suffering

Bhante Gunaratana

The process of the training path is described: no remorse, happiness, concentration, insight, knowledge of the Truth, and enlightenment. Four types of students are described: those that attain enlightenment after hearing only a few words of Dhamma; those who attain enlightenment after a little reflection and study; those who study and practice for a long time but need the help of a master, an “excellent friend” to provide the key to enlightenment; and finally those who enjoy word and ideas so much that they may lose sight of the goal, but can still attain enlightenment with the help of an “excellent friend”.
