About the Author

Born in Imphal, Manipur, graduated as an engineer in Kolkata, having participated in the Indian Freedom Movement, this extraordinary person joined the army and saw enough violence of the II World War. That led him to renounce everything and he went in search of peace and truth. At last through reading the holy Dhammapada, he came to the path of the Buddha and got ordained in Kushinagar under the most Venerable Chandamani Mahathera and came to be known as Venerable Acharya Buddharakkhita.
A visionary and hard working Buddhist monk, he scarified his whole life in study, practice and teaching of the Buddha's words and putting that compassionate teachings into practice by establishing Maha Bodhi Society, Bengaluru in 1956. Since then he worked tirelessly in the field of spirituality, education, medical and social services and established meditation centers, hospitals and educational institutions in India and abroad. He had the distinction of being a member of the Editorial Board of the Sixth Buddhist Synod (Chattha Sangayana) in Yangon, which brought out a complete edition of the Buddhist scriptures in the original Pali language.
This is the centenary year of his birth and Mahabodhi organizations and his countless disciples are celebrating the Birth Centenary with meaningful activities as mark of paying respect to the great teacher Most Venerable Acharya Buddharakkhita. We feel privileged to present this book as a part of this centenary celebrations series.


Householder's book of discipline presents these two famous discourses of the Buddha 1. Sigalovada Sutta D. 31. Advice to Sigala, the wealthy young householder of Rajagaha and 2. Dighajaņu Sutta, A.8.6.4, Discourse to Dighajaņu, also known as Byagghappajja, a practical householder, head of a big family with many children and enjoying an affluent life.
Both householders requested the Buddha to provide them with a good roadmap to enable them to reach the goal of a meaningful household life, namely, well-being and happiness here and now, in this life, as well as, hereafter, in future lives.
The author has translated the Suttas and provided historical background with tabular analysis earnestly hoping that the householder followers of the Buddha, in particular, and all householders in general, will amply benefit from these exceedingly useful and practical teachings of the Master leading one towards ultimate spiritual freedom, Nibbana!
