Posala Sutta at Toronto Maha Viharaya was conducted by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero, from 26 May to 1st June 2015.
The sutta is short and yet a deep one is about a discussion between the Lord Buddha and Posala. The question is about higher Jhanas and it is not easy to conduct a series of Dhamma talks explaining the Buddha’s answer. Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero explains the question and the answer from various angles and it is an invaluable gift to the practitioners of meditation at higher levels.
