      We can hear Waharaka Thero’s Tilakkhana discourse in Youtube.

      Series of Desana : Youtube Link

      I think it is a great discourse that may leads listeners to Ariya.

      He explained Tilakkhana that are misunderstood easily.

      However, there was a problem because I do not know sinhala.

      And I am not good at English, so I used to get lost in English subtitles.

      ​I searched text file about English subtitles, but I couldn’t find it.

      That’s why I decided to make and share text files.

       

      Series is composed of 8 desana(Anicca 3 / Dukkha 2 / Anatta 3).

      I just completed the first step(Anicca), so I would like to share it.

      It is accessible to anyone with a link.

      ※ Subtitles contain many terms in Pali, Sanskrit, and Sinhala.

      For example, Tanhā is said as Tanhā (Pali) or Thrushnā (Sanskrit).

      At first, I thought about unifying the terms into one. But I changed my mind.

      It’s because I felt that the editor followed Thero’s pronunciation exactly as it was said.

      I felt it was right to respect the editor’s intentions.

       

      So unless it’s an obvious typo, I copied it as it appeared in the subtitles exactly.

      Please let me know if I made any typos. (Email : [email protected])

      I hope this will help non-English speaking people.

       

      Teruwan Saranai!

      This is what I heard from the officials at Waharaka Thero’s temple.

      It is said that some subtitle files of the Desana had been lost. So, I was able to donate the subtitle file to the temple.

      If there is someone who had been transcribed Waharaka Thero’s sermons, please donate the files.

      I think it will be an extremely meritorious deed.
