Katina Robe Sewing & “Pandu Mangalyaya” Kiri Ahara Poojawa followed by Damsak Pawathum Suthra Desana in the evening
11 October, 2020 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm
Damsak Pawathum Suthra Desanawa is a Buddhist text that is considered by Buddhists to be a record of the first sermon given by Gautama Buddha. The main topic of this sutta is the Four Noble Truths, which refer to and express the basic orientation of Buddhism in a formulaic expression. This sutta also refers to the Buddhist concepts of the Middle Way, impermanence, and dependent origination.
According to Buddhist tradition, the Buddha delivered this discourse on the day of Asalha Puja, in the month of Ashadha, in a deer sanctuary in Isipatana. This was seven weeks after he attained enlightenment. His audience consisted of five ascetics who had been his former companions: Kondañña, Vappa, Bhaddiya, Mahanama and Assaji. (Wikipedia)
