 Special Notice Number 05 – 07 January 2018
Now the audio links of 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 are working.

As most  of our listeners were aware, a large number of the audio files stopped working working due to an update at Dropbox happened on 02 Sept 2017. 

We immediately started a migration process to an existing fall-back system and repair the damage. We have improved the situation significantly. Now we are recovering the audio files of 2013 and beyond.

We deeply regret the inconvenience caused due to this situation. Please check here regularly for the latest information on this issue.

  1. There is nothing more valuable than this Dhamma knowledge given to the public. For me this worth more than anything in this world.

  2. I am in search of details and definitions of “Sanga Beda” (divisions of monks) which includes in Anantariaya Papa Karma in Buddhism.
    As there are different views among people, please help me to get the real definition of this.
    If you could inform me the literature where to find this, it would be much helpful.
    Thank you

    • Dear Rohi,
      I don’t know much about this. However, I was informed some time ago by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero that this division of monks could only be done by another monk. Lay people cannot commit that according to Vinaya.

  3. Dear Aruna,

  5. Dear Aruna,

    I attended the Meditation program at Sri Gnanarama Meditation Center, Thalawathugoda for the first time last Saturday (18/11) with my husband.

    The time spent there was so much valuable and we greatly appreciate your efforts and guidance.

    I would like to know whether there is a weekly meditation program conducted at Sri Gnanarama Meditation Center.

    If so, please let me know the date and time, as we would like to participate if there is a weekend program.

    • Dear Avanthi,

      The meditation program on that day was conducted by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero of Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Forest Monastery. That particular program from Nissaranavanaya monastery is held only once a month.I don’t know whether they conduct any other meditation programs at Sri Gnanarama Meditation Center. You will have to check from that temple.

      Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero is leaving the country on a Dhamma tour to Australia and New Zealand on 07 December 2017. The December meditation program at Sri Gnanarama will be conducted by Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero. He is also from Nissaranavanaya Monastery. Incidentally we had another one day program in Colombo on the 19th November 2017 at Lanka Vipassana Meditation Center, Col 07.

      You could always check the following month’s program of Nissaranavanaya regarding One Day programs by scrolling down on the ‘Home’page of damsara.org. Here is a link: http://damsara.org/

      You could also check the latest additions to Damsara on the ‘”Announcements’page. It is updated regularly. We will update the Australian/Zealand Dhamma recordings of Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero even before he return to Sri Lanka in Feb 2018.Here is a link to that Announcements page: http://damsara.org/announcements/
