Building a house of peace | Ajahn Brahmavamso

Building a house of peace | Ajahn Brahmavamso

June 28, 2020

Ajahn Brahm gives a talk on meditation and how it works. One of the central principles and practices of Buddhism has been meditation. Those who know anything about the history of Buddhism know that it started with one person meditating under a tree. If there’s any holy book in Buddhism it is the holy book of meditation in which you can read in your own heart, in the stillness of your mind rather than any scripture.

Hard Questions To A Soft Teacher | Ajahn Brahmavamso & Venerable Canda | 27-06-2020

June 28, 2020

This is a recording of live stream event organised by Venerable Canda of Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project in England. It was an unprecedented opportunity for participants to ask pressing and deep questions to Meditation Master Ajahn Brahm (in Perth, Western Australia) renowned for his kindness, humour, wisdom and warmth. Topics include unfulfilled love, kamma and rebirth, gender equity in the monastic alms line, jhanas, non-self, how to relate to family members who hurt or anger us and heavenly beings! Do see it all (in increments?) including the last twelve minutes where Ajahn and Venerable Canda discuss the exciting Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project in England and how you can be involved.

The session starts with a brief introduction and Dhamma Reflection, followed by Q&A, a short meditation in the middle and further Q&A in the second half with Ajahn Brahm extending into overtime as is characteristically generous of him!

Donations towards Anukampa's aim to develop a nuns' monastery in England are extremely welcome. Thank you for your kind generosity. Please visit https://anukampaproject.org/donate/
