Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero continued on his long series on Dasuttara Sutta by conducting the 39th part during early April 2017. The retreat was the 143rd residential program to be conducted at the monastery.
It was also the first Sati Pirivena (සති පිරිවෙන) program conducted for 50 monks over a period of 5 days. During this period the Maha Thero also attended a meeting organized by senior monks of 750 Pirivena’s of the country. The Sati Pirivena program was felt to be very beneficial by the senior monks and as such this may herald a new era in the Pirivena education.
Dasuttara is the last (thirty fourth) Sutta of the Digha Nikaya, preached by Arahanth Sariputta at the Gaggarapokkharani in Campa, in the presence of the Lord Buddha. It consists of groups of doctrines – ten single doctrines, ten twofold doctrines, and so on up to ten tenfold (D.iii.272). It is said that at the end of the discourse five hundred monks became Arahants.
