Your forgot zero:

Zero things to cling to.

Nothing is worth clinging to, not even the Dhamma. The teachings are like a raft which take you to the other shore, but once there, you do not need to continue carrying the raft on your shoulders (similie of the raft).

(from Samyutta Nikaya 50

and one:

The one thing that enslaves one’s heart so powerfully:

Lust

(from Iti. 1-6)

Now, back to the order:

The Four Noble Truths:

1. Dukkha (suffering)
2. Samudaya (suffering has a cause)
3. Nirodha (suffering can be ceased)
4. Magga (the way is The Noble Eightfold Middle Path)

(from Anguttara Nikaya 3.61)

Five facts for reflection ~

I am subject to: 1.aging, 2. illness, 3. death, 4. growing different and separate, 5. being heir to my actions.

Six kinds of respect or esteem (gāravatā)

1. satthu-gāravatā — respect for the Teacher (the Buddha).
2. dhamma-gāravatā — respect for the Dhamma.
3. saṅgha-gāravatā — respect for the Saṅgha.
4. sikkhā-gāravatā — respect for the training.
5. appamāda-gāravatā — respect for heedfulness, non-negligence.
6. paṭisanthāra-gāravatā — respect for hospitality.

(Parihānasutta, AN. iii. 330-1)

This is no fun. You have to put some work into this. Try this quote: There are 8 causes and conditions for obtaining the wisdom fundamental to the holy life.... What eight? Don't forget to cite the text to see if matches the one I am referring to.

Actually, it this one I was thinking of http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html , but silly me. Any number of the discourses in AN start out that way. I think we need to refine this a bit.

I know: Let's put the answers in the form of limericks. Who wants to go first?

This may spoil your fun here :tongue: but I have perhaps the largest compilation of Buddha's lists at my websites:

http://www.thedhamma.com/ In the pdf book, download for free, chapter 20: Over 600 lists

or it is seen even better here at this encyclopedia category:

http://www.dhammawiki.com/index.php?tit ... ha's_Lists

But you can still make it interesting by having each list associated with the previous as Macavity suggested.
