Greetings,

I'm studying "Being Peace" by Thich Nhat Hanh. On page 27 (chapter 2) of the 2005 edition, Thay writes, "There is a scripture in the Pali Canon called the Sutra of Tending Buffalo..." There is no footnote, and I don't seem to be having any luck finding it. My google searches lead me either to the book I'm studying or to TNH's "Old Path, White Clouds," which is partially told from the view of Svasti the Buffalo Boy (who was the inspiration for the sutra according to "Being Peace").

I've searched google, Access to Insight and several of the forums, but so far no luck. Hoping that someone on this board may know of this sutra or other spots worth checking.

Many thanks,
Namkha

That's it exactly, Sherab. Thank you so much for helping me locate it. I should have been searching for "cowherd", I see now!
