We are pleased to send you Part 05 of Maha Chattarisaka Sutta recorded at Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Forest Monastery of Sri Lanka. This Part 05 of the Sutta series was conducted in July 2012 at a residential meditation retreat by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero.
The audio editing of this Part 5 was generously sponsored by Mr Keerthi Seneviratne of Sydney, Australia.All suttas in one way or another describe the Path to Nibbāna; there are many ways to analyze the Path. The Path to Nibbāna is normally abbreviated as sila (virtue), samādhi (moral concentration), and paññā (wisdom).
Maha Chattarisaka Sutta is important for illuminating some of the dynamics of the Eightfold Path. In particular, it describes two ways the eight factors work together, one linear and one non-linear. This sutta discusses two eight fold paths: A mundane path that leads to rebirth in the “good realms” (at or above the human realm) and the Noble Eightfold Path that leads to Nibbāna.
We are pleased to provide the translated texts of the Sutta in both Sinhala and English below;
