Community help needed!---Sutta Retreat annotation with SC IDs
#2

As per @musiko’s Sutta retreat annotation idea in the thread here, I’m going to annotate the January 2016 “Paticca Samuppada” retreat above. I’ll edit this post gradually :slight_smile: to contain these annotations (linking suttas mentioned into the talks to those on suttacentral).


#3

There are actually more talks than that listed above for this:
201604 Ajahn Brahmali in Malaysia 20160415-20160417

I had uploaded all recordings from the retreat (mostly by BGF, though if memory serves, I used my recording on mobile phone for some):
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B34cfrY-Z4rmb1d6U0M4RWRGeWc

Yes, You Can! And How the Buddha Shows the Way: 3-Day Sutta Study Camp with Ajahn Brahmali, at BGF(AN11.2, MN129, AN3.101, MN19, MN20, AN5.162, MN21, AN3.39, MN54, DN15, SN1.20, AN6.10) + Bonus: AN7.53 + Daily Guided Meditation + “Dependent Origination for Dummies” - Sun@BGF

PS - I might, in future, (learn to) upload them here.


#4

@waiyin thank you so very much for providing these recordings :heart:! You were right, previously posted recordings were only a small fraction of the entire retreat, but it was all that I could find online. The entire retreat is now updated in the opening post for all to enjoy and learn from :smile:

In the future I was meaning to compile a comprehensive guide (how to) :smile: so that anyone could do the same (it will definitely take more time writing the instructions on how to do it than actually doing it), but in the meantime I’m happy to help with cases like this.


#5

Added “June 2016 Sutta retreat for monastics, Bandarawela”.


#6

I eventually made my way through and annotated the first set of 7 talks in the OP. Not all talks have sutta references. I couldn’t identify one sutta mentioned in talk 4 (any help appreciated). There seems to have been a sutta reading list handed out in this retreat, which probably would have given the name and number. There was also an AN sutta story in talk 7 that I don’t recognize (would be nice to have a specific sutta reference if anyone recognizes it).

Dependent Origination – A Retreat with Ajahn Brahmali in Sydney – January 2016

Talk 1:
26:50; The Wise And Foolish People Sutta MN 129
31:20; Aṅgulimāla Sutta MN 86
47:35; The Great Discourse on Causation (Mahānidāna Sutta) DN 15

Talk 2:
18:25; Potaliya Sutta MN 54
41:00; Anatta-Lakkhana Sutta SN 22.59

Talk 3:

Talk 4:

7:10; reference to a sutta whose name I don’t recognize/can’t identify
The name sounds something like “maha vidharma” to me and it seemingly contains a definition of namarupa.

14:20; The Great Discourse on Causation (Mahānidāna Sutta) DN 15
23:40; Kaccānagotta Sutta SN 12.15
47:20; Rohitassa Sutta AN 4.45

Talk 5:

Talk 6:
2:40; Volition Sutta AN 11.2
21:07; Upanisa sutta SN 12.23

Talk 7:
1:10; Ignorance Sutta AN 10.61
12:10; A brief discussion of AN 1 in general and a quick listing of some of the basic factors it covers
33:00; Two Kinds of Thought Sutta MN 19
48:45; Ignorance Sutta AN 10.61 (final simile in this sutta read out)

15:52; References an unspecified sutta from the AN about a conversation between Ananda and Sariputta (seemingly the same story occurs in several places in the canon) where they discuss the difference between a person who attains and does not attain nibbana (understanding which perceptions involve decline, stability, improvement, and breakthrough).

Well done! Thank you so much for your help!

I will update the original descriptions shortly; if anyone recognises the missing sutta references please post them below (I believe the sutta mentioned in talk 4 at 7:10 is Mahanidana Sutta DN 15 and the sutta mentioned in talk 7 at 15:52 is Nibbana Sutta AN 4.179)

Thank you for all the additional links to resources!
