We are pleased to present a valuable update to Kayagata-sati Sutta conducted at Allenmathiniyaramaya by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero. It was recorded during a day meditation retreat conducted on 14 February 2015.

The Dhamma talk focused on a valuable way of living based on Ariyawansa Sutta. It was presented as a lesser known ‘Patipada’ or as a way of living conducive to the development of meditation. This talk is both valuable as a historical analysis as well as rejuvenating a simple way of living that was popular among the ancient Sri Lankans. So it has a societal value as well.

The Q&A session was very interesting and it included some questions which were not strictly connected to the meditative practice. The answers given by the Maha Thero demonstrate maturity and a depth of knowledge which is both practical and incisive.
