Upanisa Sutta

Upanisa Sutta was the Sutta taken for the discourses during the 99 Th residential meditation retreat conducted at Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Forest Monastery. The discourses were conducted in Sinhala by Most Ven U Dhammajiva Maha Thero during end July 2015.

Upanisa Sutta (or Discourse on Supporting Conditions), from Nidanasamyutta of Samyutta Nikaya is of tremendous doctrinal importance. Its great significance according to Bhikku Bodhi, derives from the striking juxtaposition it makes of two applications of “dependent arising”(paticcasamuppada), the principle of conditionality which lies at the heart of the Buddha’s doctrine.
