By Venerable Sayadaw Dr. Nandamalabhivamsa
The material in this book is a series of talk given by Venerable Sayadaw U Nandamala which he entitles “A Collection of Dhamma Talks” and with a serial No. 1 Only 4 talks are covered in this collection.
He aptly presents “8 & 1” Only one in nine can follow the Buddha’s Noble Path, and opportunity knocks only once.
In “Exits of the Mind”, Sayadaw introduces students to the 6 kinds of exits of the mind the Buddha taught in Nissarana Sutta. As we all know, the mind without a dafety outlet is likely to explode and could be driven mad when a person’s stress is overwhelming.
Sayadaw gives a succinct account of Venerable Ananda’s life in Vipassana of Venerable Ananda and wants us to understand the outstanding characteristics of Vipassana practice.
Sayadaw congenially shares with us some of his experience which is very touching in “Happiness Forever with Dhamma as your friend.” The Buddha wants us to understand and more important realize this profound teaching in order to pass beyond the suffering found in samsara.
Venerable Sayadaw U Nandamala’s skills are many. He has great expertise in Abhidhamma studies and this is reflected in this series of talk. He manages to present all these in a precise, understandable and accurate manner. His teaching is knowledgeable, deep and clear. The reader will be challenged and stimulated by this presentation of the Buddha’s teaching.
It has been my honourable task to write this Introduction though the credit goes to the transcriber, a Malaysian Sayalay and others who help to vet the work. We who offer this work presenting the materials in their pristine original condition. I apologise to the readers for any shortcomings. Nonetheless I am certain that readers will obtain abundant benefit from this series of talks.
May these discourses serve as great support for those who strive for realization along the Noble Way.
Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
