Some of the questions asked at the end include: How to console people who are distraught about their loved ones dying, especially those who do not believe in life after death? Does the mind age too? And how do you cope when your body falls apart and you have no control?

Ajahn Appichato | What Are We Aiming for When Meditating? | The Armadale Meditation Group

Ajahn Appichato | What Are We Aiming for When Meditating? | The Armadale Meditation Group

May 15, 2019

Ajahn Appi began by asking us all to reflect on all the good we have done through out our lives to up lift our minds. As an indicator, Ajahn pointed out to us that many of the people he meets daily that look at their lives in this way, are by default happy and joyful despite economic pressures. They are not typically easily distressed or unsettled. They have built a store of emotional strength on which to call when times are more difficult. By reflecting on all the good things in life rather than the negative.

Ajahn then guided the group in a longer than usual meditation asking us all to be as comfortable as we are able first. Then to reflect on all the good qualities that we each know we have. After reflecting on ourselves we moved to the good we have done for others, then to breath meditation. This meditation is more suited to experienced meditators.

After meditation Ajahn opened to questions. In response to a question, Ajahn then reminded us that no matter who we are we are all capable of reaching very deep meditative states. So for many of us, when random thoughts intrude, we need to address them, to understand why they continue to intrude. Looking as deeply as we can into such thoughts helps to diminish them. Then they eventually go away. Samadhi is attained.

We think that we own our body and emotions. Venerable Hasapanna reminds us that our body and emotions are impermanent and we don’t own them. Venerable advises one way to help build wholesome qualities, habits and mental states is to remember that we are not permanent, our negative emotions won't last.
