We are pleased to provide a series of Dhamma talks based on Girimananda Sutta. It is a famous Sutta of Lord Buddha. This lengthy discourse was conducted by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero during a residential meditation retreat conducted in English at Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Forest Monastery.
In this Sutta the Lord Buddha helps the Arahant Girimananda Thero to recover from a grave illness through reviewing 10 types of very useful reflections. The Buddha first teach that to Ven. Ananda and ask him to visit the sick monk and recite the reflections. The Arahant Girimananda Thero recovers from the grave illness after listening to those 10 reflections.
We have provided two links for the benefit of those who wish to read more details of the Sutta. The first is a link to the Sutta from accesstoinsight.org and the second is a PDF in English with a lot of information from dharmafarer.net:
