Bhikkhuni Hasapanna: The Importance of Sila

Here is a talk given by Ayya Hasapanna on her recent Dhamma Duta tour of Malaysia. It was given at the Buddhist Gem Fellowship, Petaling Jaya (KL) around December 7th 2011. The recording is a bit problematic, but the message comes through anyway in Ayya’s characteristic style.
