Ajahn Brahm fields a question about types of "samadhi". He goes on to say that there is only one type of samadhi, and that it makes no sense to translate the word as "concentration" when what it really means is "stillness".

This third recording is questions and answers. Ajahn answers questions about body-scanning (awareness of feelings in the body), letting go of oneself, and a question about attachment arising "naturally" (which Ajahn argues, is actually unnatural). The fourth recording is a Dhamma talk on ‘What is Right Livelihood.’

Some highlights of Ajahn's teachings:
1. The heart of the Teachings is the same attitude towards meditation and life.
2. Samatha and Vipassana are both sides of the same coin. Ajahn tells the story of Sam and Vi up Meditation Mountain, with their dog Metta.
3. The two different types of meditation are Second Noble Truth (craving leads to suffering) meditation and Third Noble Truth (letting go of desire leads to stillness of the mind) meditation. "If you're suffering during meditation, you're wanting something." "We meditate to let go, not to attain something."
