On Monday 24 July, we were honoured to host Ven. Professor K.L. Dhammajoti, a Malaysian monk of Chinese descent, and one of the leading scholars on the Abhidhamma. In his Dhamma teaching, Ven. Dhammajoti advocated learning the Dhamma by learning and reflecting on the suttas, and putting what we learn into practice.
Ven. Dhammajoti expounded on five bases of liberation as taught by the Buddha in the Vimuttāyatanasutta (Anguttara Nikaya 5.26), whereby one can experience inspiration in the meaning and inspiration in the Dhamma through learning, teaching, reciting, reflecting, or properly attending to an object of meditation. This leads to the arising of joy, rapture, tranquillity, pleasure and concentration.
We thank Ven. Dhammajoti for coming to Nalanda Centre and for his comprehensive teaching. May Ven. Dhammajoti be blessed with good health and success in his many noble endeavours. Sadhu!
