Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero conducted a five days long residential retreat based on Samudaya Sutta during May 2019 at Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Monastery.
This is a special Sutta of Lord Buddha as the Sutta explains the Satipatthana or the ”Way of Mindfulness” from a different perspective.
This Sutta is unusual and special because it identifies the word Satipatthana, not with the standard formula of the process of establishing mindfulness, but with the objects that form the frame of reference for that process. For example, the first Satipatthana is simply identified as ‘body’.
Then, the sutta develops to teach and analyze the causes for the origination and cessation of the phenomena upon which the four foundations of mindfulness meditation are grounded.
These Dhamma discussions and Dhamma Talks conducted by Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero are well focused on this deep and short Sutta of the Lord Buddha.
This series is highly recommended for the serious practitioners of Dhamma.
