Dasuttara Sutta (In Sinhala) was the Sutta taken by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero for the 97th residential meditation retreat at Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Forest Monastery. 

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. 

The Sutta consists of groups of doctrines – ten single doctrines, ten twofold doctrines, and so on up to ten tenfold. The Sutta is mentioned as describing the pārisuddhipadhāniyanga.

Dasuttara Sutta (In Sinhala) is available at Buddha Jayanthi Tripitaka. As it is a long discourse, we are unable to provide a separate PDF of the Sutta. However, if you wish to read the sutta, it can be downloaded from the 3rd book of Digha Nikaya. The book is 101 MB of size. The Sutta starts at page no. 468 and please click here to download the 3rd Book of Digha Nikaya.

Please note that the recording had taken place in the middle of a lot of building construction work. It was not possible to remove all the noises of the construction work.
