The Way to obtain Benefits through Practice of Buddhism - Public Talk by Ven. Prof. N. Gnanaratana Thero

It is recorded that at the end of Buddha's first sermon, many beings including five ascetics had been able to realise the truth. This indicates that even the first sermon was enough to get the final result of practicing Buddhism. Today, many people spend thousands of hours in reading books and listening to sermons but seem to achieve no intended advancement. This talk discusses what is wrong and shows guidance for right practice.
