We pleased to provide the fifth and the final part of Anumana Sutta discourse conducted by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero. This invaluable sutta was originally presented by Arahanth Moggallana to emphasize the importance of Vinaya. Vinaya is very important to the continuation of the order of Monks and thereby the Dhamma.

We like to present the final part of the Sutta discourse with a special audio clip from the final Q&A session. In this audio clip a Nun express her concern and grievances regarding the lower acceptance of them by the world. The answer given by the Maha Thero demonstrates the following;

  1. Maturity as a teacher of Dhamma. The Maha Thero gradually directs the answer to the level of realization by pointing out to recall as to why they renounce and became Monks or Nuns. Not to seek favors or justice, but to realize Nibbana.
  2. The Way of Living Practiced at Nissaranavanaya Monastery. The Maha Thero proceeds to explain simple and humble and yet unique way of living practiced at Nissaranavanaya Forest Monastery.
  3. True spirit of the Order of those who have renounced the World. The answer is a fine example of the Ariya (Noble) Monks of the past, the present and the future. It is like a fine fragrance emanating from the past to the present and the future.
