Theravāda Analysis of Meritorious Deeds - A Public Talk by Dr Ashoka Welitota
Early Theravāda sources refer to three bases of meritorious deeds: generosity (dāna), morality (sīla) and meditation (bhāvanā). This number is increased to ten or twelve in its exegetical literature. Hence a discussion is needed to understand how exegetes increased the number and subsumed newly added bases under three bases of meritorious deeds: generosity, morality and meditation.

Ashoka Welitota is a Buddhist scholar specializing in Theravāda. He obtained his Doctor of Philosophy Degree from The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong. Currently, he serves as a Senior Lecturer attached to the Department of Buddhist Sources, Postgraduate Institute of Pali and Buddhist Studies, University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka.
