Maha-Malunkya Sutta (July 2023)

Maha Malunkya Sutta was selected by Ven Panadure Chandaratana Thero of Mitirigala Nissarana Vanaya Forest Monastery as the next Sutta for Sutta Teachings in English on 12 July 2023Maha-Malunkya Sutta was selected by Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero of Mitirigala Nissarana Vanaya Forest Monastery as the next Sutta for Sutta Teachings in English on 12 July 2023.

Maha-Malunkya Sutta is an excellent Sutta. Here the Lord Buddha explains to Ven. Malunkya Putta and other monks that it’s inadequate to just know about the Lower Fetters (Orambhagiyani Samyojana) as those occur but rather they should Know and eradicate those at anusaya level.  (anusaya level is the level where they remain as mere latent dispositions in the mind.)

Here it’s important to keep in mind that Lower Fetters (Orambhagiya Samyojana) are eliminated at the level of the Non- Returner (Anagami).  This is an excellent Sutta for those who have developed to the level of Cittanupassana and Dhammanupassana.
