On the actual day of Vesak (birth, enlightenment and passing away of the Buddha) in 2010, Ajahn Brahmali gives a teaching on the life and qualities of the Buddha and how his example can be an inspiration for our own practice. Ajahn reminds us that the person who sees the Buddha, also sees the Dhamma, and the person who sees the Dhamma, also sees the Buddha.

Ajahn Brahmali discusses how the Buddha's core teachings have given rise to the numerous traditions and teachings of Buddhism that exist today. Through textual comparison, scholars can today point to those core teachings of the Buddha that are common across the early existent canons of the various Buddhist schools. These early teachings are where Ajahn Brahmali believes we should focus our attention if we are to uncover the Buddha's original teachings.

The View That Frees | Ajahn Brahmali | 16 January 2021

April 17, 2021

Ajahn Brahmali offers a talk from Bodhinyana Monastery, Western Australia online to Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project, in the UK. In this talk, Ajahn Brahmali defines right (and wrong!) view and helps us understand how views come about. He shows how we can develop right view to inform and empower our meditation, freeing our minds from the five hindrances - and eventually freeing ourselves from all erroneous views - to experience a peace beyond the conditioned world.

All of us hold views based on our conditioning, which then reinforce our perceptions and thoughts, essentially creating our world. Buddhist practice is about learning how to steer our mind away from suffering and in the direction of freedom - whether inside or outside of meditation - and gradually align our views with the way things are.

Right view at the preliminary level is the foundation of the path and helps guide our intentions and behaviour in wholesome ways, gradually making deep meditation both possible and productive of liberating insight. Once we penetrate the Four Noble Truths, our view of reality becomes perfected and forms the basis for the successive stages of liberation.

Ajahn Brahmali offers some practical advice for dealing with restlessness: by reflecting on what is really important in your life, you realise it is your spiritual growth and as a result your mind becomes less interested in worldly matters and settles down. You begin to prioritise your spiritual life, over your worldly life and things.
