This is Venerable Cunda's second visit this year to the Armadale Meditation Group. Venerable spoke tonight of our modern world, our busy lives and our constant contact with technology. The result of such activity is a monkey mind. We need to relax more, meditation is a very good way to do just that and let our busy lives go, if only for a brief period.

Venerable lead the group in a 30 minute meditation. Venerable likes to commence his meditation with a body sweep commencing with the face and working to the feet. Venerable reminds us to use our bodies as an anchor for our focus. This meditation is well suited to both experienced and new meditators alike.

After meditation, Venerable encouraged us to sit quietly for a few moments and carry the relaxed mind and boby as long as we could. Venerable then opened briefly to questions.

Ajahn Cittapalo reminds us that meditation is not about stopping the mind nor fixating on a single thing. Rather we should be kindly aware of what is happening with our mind. Practice just watching what is happening. Don't try to change it, simply acknowledge it and let it go. As we practice this more often, the inner monologue occurs less. Allowing us to enjoy a peaceful relaxing meditation.

The group, having all meditated previously, meditated for thirty minutes in silence.

After meditation Ajahn drew our attention to how happy we feel after meditation and how good the general feeling.

Ajahn Jhanarato based tonight's meditation on Metta and Loving Kindness. In his opening talk Ajahn also asks us to remember to be kind and loving to ourselves, give ourselves Metta. It is often difficult to be kind and loving to ourselves. Especially in western societies. Whilst we find it easy to think well of others, we all to often are less than kind to ourselves. We hold onto the past and we worry about the future. This is not being very kind nor loving to ourselves. We need to let it go.

Ajahn then lead the group in a thirty minute meditation focused on Metta.

After meditation Ajahn opened to Q&A.  In answering a question he has been recently asked, “what is the most valuable lesson he has learned since becoming a monk”. Ajahn's answer was contentment.

The mind is the forerunner of all things, and our mind can transform our circumstances. The mind that is sharp and empowered can achieve much, and even energise the body. Ajahn Brahm explains how giving everything we’ve got to the task at hand can transform our situation in unexpected and positive ways. Focusing on what we’re doing in the moment is also the key to developing meditation.

Ajahn Santutthi talked to us about being a Buddhist monk in the modern world and how it helps to cope with the stresses that come with our modern world. Meditation, over time, allows our monks and us, to leave these stresses behind. If only for a short time, just to allow our minds to relax and quieten.

Ajahn then guided us in a thirty minute meditation well suited to all by encouraging us to simply relax. Make ourselves comfortable and detach from our hectic lives.

After meditation Ajahn opened to questions and further encouraged us to be kind to our minds. Don't make meditation a job, chore or task. Just allow your mind to be your mind and relax.

There are ways to meditate that are recommended by the Buddha and ways that are not recommended by the Buddha. Ajahn Brahmali explains that the meditation that increase the 5 hindrances are not to be recommended.

We’re all so busy in the modern world – and it’s wearing us out! As Buddhists, how are we to deal with busy-ness? Ajahn Brahm points out that it’s not necessarily the amount of work that people have that is the problem, but how we relate to the work. If we relate to the work with a different attitude it need not be suffering.
