Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero conducted a Virtual (distant) meditation retreat via Zoom from 28 December 2020 to 01 January 2021. The Sutta teachings for the retreat was based on Majjhe Sutta. This Virtual retreat was organized by the Dhamma group of Canberra, Australia.
Majjhe sutta is in The Book of the Sixes or in Chakka Nipāta of the Aṅguttara Nikāya. The Sutta incorporates six interpretations of the ‘Middle Path’ as given by six senior monks.
