The Wise Shall Realize, the latest collection of English sutta desananas from Mahamegha, contains six discourses along with the story of Lokusvaminwahanse's journey seeking the Nobel Eightfold path. What is the best way we can help our friends? In the Mittamacca Sutta we learn that the Supreme Buddha wanted us to help our friends by establishing them in unshakable confidence in the Supreme Buddha, Supreme Dhamma, and Supreme Sangha as well as in unbreakable virtue. What should a lay disciple spend their time thinking about? In the Mahanama sutta the Supreme Buddha teaches the recollections we should practice all the time. If we saw the world in the same way the Supreme Buddha did, we would not experience suffering. In the Mahadukkhakkhanda Sutta we lean about our distorted perception of the world. Is it possible for a wise person to turn away from the lures of sensuality? In the Malunkyaputta sutta the Blessed One teaches his disciples a method for doing just that. The Gotama sutta explains the Supreme Buddha's discovery of dependent origination as the direct path for putting an end to this round of samsara. And in the Ananada Sutta, the Blessed One teaches the connection between anapanasati, the four foundations of mindfulness and the seven factors of enlightenment as a path to bring clear knowing and release to completion. Finally, you will get to read a brief account of Lokusvaminwahanse's life story and his efforts to realize the Dhamma.
