Dasuttara Sutta was taken as the Sutta series for the retreat conducted at Sydney, Australia by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero during December 2017. The retreat was a seven day meditation program and the Maha Thero continued the long series on Dasuttara Sutta for the 53rd occasion.
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.
