Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero continued on his long series on Dasuttara Sutta by conducting the 41st part during end April 2017. The retreat was the 145th residential program to be conducted at the monastery.

This 145th residential retreat was specifically conducted for Buddhist Nuns. There were quite young nuns present at the retreat. The 145th retreat was conducted on the seven factors that needs to be eliminated by those who wish to escape from Sansara.

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.
