--- Venerable Ānanda asked, "When the Buddha is no longer in the world, who is there to teach us?"
"What more is there to teach, Ānanda?" the Buddha asked. "I have taught you all I know. There is nothing that I have kept hidden. My teachings are your teacher now. Follow them and you will be true to me." ---

(Mahāparinibbāna-sutta of the Dīgha-nikāya, Sutta No.16)
