Pilgrimage Talks 2020
Volunteers of Sirimangalo International were interested in organizing a pilgrimage trip to India and Nepal, and invited Bhante Yuttadhammo to join. We are thankful to Bhante for not only joining, but also for being our source of information for the places visited. In addition to briefing us about every place and its significance, Bhante also gave five Dhamma talks, at the five most important locations.
This booklet is a collection of talks that Bhante Yuttadhammo gave while doing the Buddhist pilgrimage tour in India in the year 2020. These talks were given to an audience of about twelve people who were traveling along with him for this pilgrimage. It was also recorded live, to be shared on YouTube. The work of transcribing Bhante Yuttadhammo’s talks has been done by volunteers and some parts of the transcription have been edited to make it an easier read. All such editing of the original talks is the sole responsibility of the volunteers, and any mistakes evident here are to be accredited to that group.
Lessons in Practical Buddhism
My hope in putting together this book is that more people may benefit from the teachings of the Buddha on a practical level; it seems to me proper that if one wishes to live in peace and happiness, it behooves one to work to spread peace and happiness in the world in which one lives.

In 2011, the Venerable Yuttadhammo Bhikku began releasing a series of videos on YouTube in which he shares the verses of the Dhammapada with related stories, and he also provides his commentary and perspective on each lesson. The intent of this book is to provide a condensed version of the YouTube videos in written form. A group of volunteers from Sirimangalo International Buddhist Meditation Society has aided in the editing of the episodes. The videos offer a valuable combination of original Dhammapada verses, rich and compelling stories, and unique commentary from Ven. Yuttadhammo Bhikku.
