Dasuttara Sutta – Part 03 was the Sutta discourse at the 102nd residential retreat at Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Monastery. It was a continuation of the same sutta started during the 97th residential meditation retreat conducted at the monastery. However, Most Ven. Dhammajiva Maha Thero pointed out certain very interesting areas in this Part 03 of this invaluable long Sutta series.

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. 

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.
