Sri Lankan monastery Mahamevnawa cannot expect the mythic elaborations of the Mahavamsa chronicle to be accepted by the world at large:

“The Mahavansha mentions about the Dhamma discourses preached by the Arahant Mihindu Thero in His first period of time in Sri Lanka. It is our intention to explore and discuss about those discourses in this article. Arahant Mihindu Thero’s first sermon was the ‘Chūlahatthipadōpama Sutta’, which was included in the Majjhima Nikāya.” —-Mahamevnawa homepage
