Posala Sutta Questions in English provides the questions raised by the Yogis in English during the meditation retreat conducted at Toronto Mahavihara during May 2015 by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero.

The sutta is short and yet a deep one is about a discussion between the Lord Buddha and Posala. The question raised by Posala 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.

Posala Sutta Questions in English page contains short Q&A sessions in English recorded during 07 days. Kindly note that one day, the Maha Thero explains a small section in Sinhala for a few minutes. This has been kept without removing for preserving the full meaning.
