Reply To: Discourses by Waharaka Thero Subtitled in English


Yes. This was an early discourse by Waharaka Thero.

He has said that there is some evidence that the Buddha was born in Sri Lanka. But he said (at 8:30 minutes of the above recording) that it is not the time to bring it up.
– Bringing up this issue leads to unnecessary controversies that will distract from learning/teaching Buddha Dhamma.
– Further archeological studies will establish the truth one way or the other. There is no need for us to have a debate or even express opinions.

Therefore, I would like this discussion to end here. Let us focus on learning Buddha Dhamma.
