About This Book
The Girimānanda Sutta is the sixtieth discourse in the Anguttara Nikaya. The sutta consists of ten contemplations, and deals with subjects which are partly explained in the Visuddhimagga and other Nikaya commentaries. The Girimānanda Sutta has been used as a subject for meditation as well as a means for the healing of suffering, in a practice known as ‘Paritta Chanting’. When the Venerable Girimānanda was sick, the Buddha asked Ananda Bhikkhu to chant for him, after which, Girimānanda recovered.
