We are very happy to offer another valuable Sutta discourse especially suited for this year-end Holiday season. This discourse is invaluable due to the following reasons;

  1. This is a very useful Sutta discourse of the Lord Buddha. The Sutta teaches us how to handle ‘Intruding Thoughts’. Intruding thoughts is a primary obstacle for most people who try to meditate.
  2. The Sutta is explained to us by one of the best meditation teachers of our time, Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero. The Maha Thero explains various layers of the intruding thoughts and expertly explains the methodologies for handling those. The keen listener will be able to gain a lot of practical benefits from the discourse. The contents are especially valuable to both the ‘Advancing’ and ‘Advanced’ Meditation practitioners.

We are pleased to provide a PDF of the Sutta from Buddha Jayanthi Tripitaka. Please click here to download the PDF of the Sutta.
