Buddha’s Thinking Management Plan | Ajahn Nissarano

Buddha’s Thinking Management Plan | Ajahn Nissarano

September 6, 2020

A Dhamma talk given at the Buddhist Society of Victoria (BSV) by Ajahn Nissarano. Date given believed to be around December 2019 to February 2020. Please visit the BSV Podcast Channel and BSV YouTube Channel

Ajahn Nissarano talks about the Buddha's thinking management plan. Ajahn explains how thinking can play a role in increasing or decreasing wholesome states of our mind. Thinking is an approximation of reality. Ajahn also talks about the two kinds of thought according to the Buddha, i.e. sensual, malicious and cruel thoughts to one class, and renunciation, goodwill and harmlessness to another class. By using wise attention to cultivate the wholesome states of mind, we will avoid/let go of negative states of mind. By accepting or letting thinking be, rather than getting caught up in it or rejecting it, thinking can tend to lose its energy and reduce by itself. Ajahn Nissarano then tells Ajahn Brahm's story about thinking. Finally, there is a quick Q&A session.

Ajahn Nissarano explains how to cope with fear and anxiety by cultivating our mind state. People might think that you either have an emotion, such as anxiety, or you don't. But Buddhism sees emotions in a different way. We have all these emotions in us, it's just a matter of finding the way to make positive emotions powerful.
