We are pleased to present the recordings of the 10 day residential retreat being conducted at the Chuang Yen Monastery of New York, USA. Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero conducted the program at this large monastery situated in 225 acres in Kent, Putnam County, New York. The monastery houses the largest indoor Buddha statue of the Western Hemisphere.
As in the previous year the Maha Thero selected Dasuttara Sutta for the Dhamma discourses. The Maha Thero is quite conversant with the Sutta and prefers to highlight different areas from the Sutta as a continued series. In Sri Lanka he conducted the 41st part of the sutta in Sinhala during the last retreat!
Dasuttara Sutta is the 34th or the last Sutta of Digha Nikaya preached by the Chief Disciple Most Ven. Sariputta at the Gaggarāpokkharani in Campā, in the presence of the Lord Buddha. It is said that at the end of the discourse five hundred monks became Arahants.
