Ajahn Appichato | What Are We Looking For In Meditation | The Armadale Meditation Group

Ajahn Appichato | What Are We Looking For In Meditation | The Armadale Meditation Group

June 19, 2019

Ajahn Appichato asks us the question “What Are We Looking For In Meditation”.  Ajahn then spoke of the many variations of meditation, metta, breath etc and the benefits. Ajahn reminds us that we should try each if not all until we find one that best suits our own nature. One size may well fit many but nothing beats a perfect fit.

On this occasion, Ajahn asked us to find within ourselves an emotion that we would associate with an event from the past. For example, sadness for a lose. We then began our meditation by using a mantra asking for example; may I be happy, may I be well, may I live in peace. After approximately 10 minutes we moved onto breath meditation. An easy meditation well suited to beginners and experienced meditators alike.

Following the meditation Ajahn opened to questions.

Are you restless during meditation? Are you thinking: "I will get this out of the way first and then I will meditate?" Ajahn Brahm calls this the monkey mind and offers advice on how to slow down our running mind, so that we can instead experience the enjoyment of having a peaceful mind. We’re sorry this video ends a little early and abruptly.

Ajahn Brahmavamso | Learning How To Keep Your Mind Peaceful and Happy | The Armadale Meditation Group

Ajahn Brahmavamso | Learning How To Keep Your Mind Peaceful and Happy | The Armadale Meditation Group

June 13, 2019

It's wet and cold outside. Still Ajahn Brahm starts the evening with a joke about his own voice. He explains that he has the "Pony" virus... It makes his voice a little "horse". Clearly a little unwell and tired from his recent trip, still he is happy. Ajahn as always, has us laughing from the start. Even joking that to fit the microphone headset, we will need to widen it to allow for his new big head. The reason for his new big head, Ajahn Brahm has been appointed a "Member of the Order of Australia". Ajahn received this honour for services to Buddhism and gender equality. How do we get to this level of contentment, peace and harmony. As Ajahn explains, we meditate and practise as often as we can.

To begin our meditation, Ajahn asks us to look as closely as we can at our own bodies, to be happy with who and what we are. Look deeply into those areas that may be troubling us, like a sore throat and make ourselves comfortable as much as possible.

After meditation Ajahn opened to questions. The first question was "what is a good life". There went the rest of the night. How-ever, Ajahn still managed to inject a few jokes and funny stories into the explanation.

This session was enjoyed by all present from children to elderly and so can be easily done by beginners and experienced alike.
