Use a good quality like a product called "Kilz" to seal the area that is stained. It may take two coats, but one usually works. The entire ceiling will then need to be painted so you don't end up with a white spot instead of a brown one.

l use a spray can called'stain blocker' sprays on white and can paint over in 2-3 hours if none available I've used oil based undercoat when dry repaint whole ceiling
