"Advice about Advice"

Post by Dhammanando »

A good collection of talks on kalyāṇamittatā, given to newly ordained monks by Ven. Ariyawansa of the Mahamevnāwa Vihāra in May 2008.
This booklet has been prepared incorporating the instructions given to monks newly ordained at Mahamevnāwa Monastery to enable them to make a success of their monkhood. These instructions have been given for the sole benefit of the resident monks at Mahamevnāwa, but any honest and humble person who would like to lead a successful life will be able to use these Dhamma facts given herein and apply them to their lives.
“Keep to your own pastures, bhikkhus, walk in the haunts where your fathers roamed.
If ye thus walk in them, Māra will find no lodgement, Māra will find no foothold.”
— Cakkavattisīhanāda Sutta
