Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero conducted a 5 days long residential retreat at Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Monastery in early May 2019 based on Sapugiya (Samugiya) Sutta. This sutta from Chathukka Nipata of Anguttara Nikaya was preached by Most Ven. Ananda Thero at the city named Samugiya to Koliyas. 

This is another ”forgotten” and yet a very important Sutta in Sutta Pitaka. What was started in RET 208 Samatha & Vipassana gets lifted up to another higher, deeper level through these discourses conducted by Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero.

This valuable Sutta explains the four efforts needed for the purification of behaviour, mind, vision and liberation. These are;

  1. Sila Parisuddhi Padhaniyanga.
  2. Citta Parisuddhi Padhaniyanga
  3. Ditthi Parisuddhi Padhaniyanga
  4. Vimutti Parisuddhi Padhaniyanga.
