Nala Kalāpa Sutta was the sutta focused on by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero at a residential retreat at Katoomba, Sydney. The retreat was conducted from 19th to 25th December 2015.

Nala Kalāpa Sutta is a very valuable sutta which is rarely discussed at Dhamma sermons today. In this Sutta the Lord Buddha emphasize and reveal a lot of valuable areas of Dhamma. One important aspect revealed in Nala Kalāpa Sutta is the explanation as to what makes a proper Dhamma Teacher or a preacher of Dhamma. Such knowledge is invaluable these days to the listeners of Dhamma available in abundance through various media.

Kindly note that during the Q&A Sessions, the questioners from the audience had asked questions without a microphone. The sound was very faint and we have improved that to the best of our ability. In some occasions the recording had captured the sound of a ticking clock. It may have happened due to the clock being kept near the recorder or as a result of us dramatically amplifying the faint audio track during Q&A sessions. In spite of these we have managed to maintain the basic quality of this rare Dhamma series for the benefit of the present and future generations.
