Ajahn Khemavaro conducts an intermediate/advanced meditation class for approximately one hour. Recorded at Dhammaloka Buddhist Centre, Perth, Western Australia.
Ajahn Khemavaro, the Abbott of Wat Buddha Dhamma Monastery talks about how appreciation leads to contentment, stillness, peace, less doing and contentment can be used to developed wisdom. Ajahn also shares his experiences and reflections about what has happened in the last year and half while trying to re-establish Wat Buddha Dhamma as a Forest Monastery, and how things have changed since he was a disciple of Ajahn Brahm at Bodhinyana Monastery.
Ajahn Khemavaro starts out with the simile of digging a well to find water and how this requires persistent digging in the same spot in order to hit water. He then goes on to talk about how we need to be dedicated in our practice focusing on our chosen practices to find the profound liberating happiness that can be found on the spiritual path.
Reflecting upon the great many changes that have occurred on this very same day, creating a real sense of uncertainty, Ajahn Khemavaro discusses how to deal with that pervasive sense of uncertainty and the anxiety it can induce. Ajahn Khemavaro explains how to cultivate a sense that everything will be alright, and to be at peace with whatever happens next.
