A website dedicated to the discourses made by Arahath Mahanuwara Wajirabuddhi Thero
A great sage, born in ancient India known as “Goutama
Buddha” often referred to as “Buddha”
discovered “Pristine Dhamma” (Buddhism).
Dhamma, the original teaching of the Buddha owns a historical
inheritance of nearly 2600 years and it is purely a way of living only
to be understood with one’s own wisdom. Today, this teaching
has been turned into a book knowledge based subject known as Buddhism
where it is practiced as worship, rituals, chanting and wishing. This
teaching is also now practised as a livelihood aimed at gaining worldly
pleasures, fame, praise and popularity. Consequently in an
era as this where the original teaching of Buddha has been layered by
traditional and cultural influences making it difficult to understand,
Arahath Mahanuwara Wajirabdhdhi Thero, through his personal and
practical experiences is shining the light to Pristine Dhamma once
Living in seclusion since 1990, practising and
investigating the teaching of the Buddha under the guidance of
self-experienced, skillful, and noble teachers Arhath
Mahanuwara Wajirabudhdhi Thero, owing to his persistent practise is
fortunate to attain the supreme bliss of Nibbana (the highest state of
perfect happiness and peacefulness and a state of mind which could only
be self-experienced by walking the path).
Four Noble Truths, Dukkha (There is no permanent happiness in this
world), Samudhaya (The cause for dukkha is attachment to desires),
Nirodha (Liberation from dukkha), Magga (The path to liberate from
Dukkha) is an extremely delicate reality impossible to be
perceived by the external senses such as eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body
and mind and that these Four Noble Truths rest within one’s
own self. Henceforth, in keeping to the words of the supreme Buddha,
Arhath Mahanuwara Wajirabudhdhi Thero who practises what he preaches
and preaches what he practises, imparts a captivating guidance to his
Arahath Thero addresses all human beings with no discrimination to
race, creed, cast or any social status.
