1) mantra on emptiness
2) awareness of darkness.
Following this Ajahn does breath meditation.

Using the analogy of a bush fire, Ajahn Vayama explains how to put out the fires of suffering in our lives. All of us live in the forest of greed, hatred and delusion, and all of us are at risk of getting burned at any time. With this in mind, we need to turn our minds to understanding the dangers of a fire breaking out any time, and of preparing ourselves through mindfulness and cultivating the spiritual qualities.

Western society is caught up with the idea of punishment that we often condemn ourselves with guilt, and seek to punish ourselves for perceived wrongdoing. Ajahn Brahm says to hell with this punishment and advocates taking a kinder, more loving approach to the people in our lives, especially ourselves.

The last week of Rains has arrived. The monks will be with us again next week but we have one more guest speaker before then - Barry Gaskin. Barry has been an attendee at the Armadale group for almost 20 years. He has traveled much of South East Asia in his working career - Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

Barry gave a background to his strange introduction to Meditation and Buddhism. He explained his observations as a Westerner living in Buddhist countries, his beliefs of Pre-Birth through to Post Death, how lucky we are and also how meditation can impact on happiness. Meditation is always taught "how to do" but he wants to explain "when to do" as a way of life, with difference and ease.

Barry then lead the group in a 30 minute meditation easily enjoyed by experienced and beginners alike. Barry began with a relaxing body scan, asking us to open our hearts to self-compassion and finishing with a difference.

After meditation Barry continued his talk on Buddhism in both the West and the East.
