Contemplate - Don’t Think | Ajahn Brahmavamso

Contemplate - Don’t Think | Ajahn Brahmavamso

December 28, 2019

Where does an understanding of truth come from? Ajahn Brahm describes how it comes from the contemplation which is based on stillness, because when you are still you can see deeply and it does not come from thinking; if you think too much you only see the surface and superficial. Hence to really understand things deeply and find their true meaning you must train your mind to be still, so that it can penetrate deeply into the nature of things. Ajahn points out that it’s not what your taught which makes you wise, it is what you see that makes you wise.

Ajahn Cittapalo | Something To Aspire To | Armadale Meditation Group

Ajahn Cittapalo | Something To Aspire To | Armadale Meditation Group

December 20, 2019

Ajahn Cittapalo asks us to consider the Metta Sutta and it's wording. Ajahn reminds us that the Metta Sutta is something to aspire to. How-ever, when we meditate we should focus our attention on just one person, ourselves. Make number one happy, then more often than not, those around us will be happy too. Ajahn reminds us that we should put our own mind first in meditation. If we are calm and happy, it will be easier, more pleasant to wish others well.

Ajahn then guided the group in meditation well suited to beginners and experienced alike and a pleasure to do. Ajahn asks us to be kind to ourselves first before considering others. To simply allow thoughts to come, to go and not apply any pressure to our mind. Just let it progress.

After the meditation, Ajahn continued his talk on the Metta Sutta asking us to bare in mind that it is a translation, not a set of instructions.
