Bhante Upasama asks us to be kind to our mind during meditation. Bhante begins the evening with a brief talk on Metta. Bhante asks us to use metta to ourselves in our meditation, lower our expectation to below zero and be kind to our minds. Just relax and do nothing.

Tonight's meditation is NOT a guided meditation and is best suited to experienced mediators.

After the meditation Bhante talked on a wide variety of subjects.

If you’ve got an itchy head, would you scratch your bum? Ajahn Brahm explains that one of the elements of the spiritual path is the attention and wisdom to recognise where and when you have a problem and thereby directing your efforts in that area – rather than the wrong area – in order to get a the right result. And ultimately we need to recognise the causes of happiness and suffering within ourselves, rather than blaming others for our problems.

Ajahn Brahm talks about the mental origins of addictions and obsessions, and the pathway to overcoming them.

You don't have to stick to one type of meditation practice in one session. Ajahn Nitho teaches; that you can alternate between two meditations, such as breathing meditation and metta meditation to take you deeper into stillness i.e. you can use breath meditation to stabilise your mind and Metta meditation to create positive feelings and emotions and to lift your mind.

Ajahn Nitho says he hears people say they don't have time to practice and it is so difficult to find the time and a quiet place to meditate. Many people think, including himself before he became monk that meditation is where you really see the effect of the practice. But Ajahn emphasises that meditation is just one part of the Eightfold Path and meditation is built on practicing the other 7 parts, which can be practiced and applied in our daily life 24/7 i.e. while driving, working, cooking and so on.

The Noble Eightfold Path: (The Middle Way):

1. Right view

2. Right thought or intention

3. Right speech

4. Right action

5. Right livelihood

6. Right effort

7. Right mindfulness

8. Right samadhi or stillness
