June 30, 2020

Ajahn Santutthi teaches us that when our mind is calm it can listen to our own instruction to let go of thinking and be in the present moment. Ajahn also inspires us to deepen our practice to the point where meditation does not feel like a chore but our passion, something that we look forward to rather than feeling that it is something we have to do.

Ajahn Santutthi | Escape The World | Armadale Meditation Group

Ajahn Santutthi | Escape The World | Armadale Meditation Group

March 5, 2020

Ajahn Santutthi began the evening by asking us to use our free time during the day to meditate. Rather than social media or other activities. Ajahn suggests that rather than using our free time to do social media, we meditate and focus inward. If we focus our energy inward rather than outward we soon learn to cultivate the peace and quiet that is there for all of us. Leaving the world behind and turning inward, even for a short time, will allow us to become outwardly peaceful and quiet.

Ajahn then guided us in meditation asking us to get away from life by turning inward and watching our inner world rather than focusing on external things. When thoughts arise that seem to want to distract us from peace and stillness, just let them go. Watch them rather than engaging with them. Ajahn also asks us to look for the reward in our practice, the peace, the stillness. Over time this will increase. So rather than spending money to escape the world, we can turn inwards to find peace and stillness.

After meditation Ajahn touches briefly on the hindrances that plague most of us when we first begin to meditate. Ajahn then opened to questions before continuing to talk on meditation in general.

Ajahn Santutthi | Our Minds are Chaos | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

Ajahn Santutthi | Our Minds are Chaos | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

February 26, 2020

February 2020

Ajahn Santutthi reminded us that often things within our minds are beyond our control. Thoughts arise and thoughts go. It is often when we look at our thoughts that we become tangled, engaged in them. Chaos. With time or rather, over time we learn to notice such thoughts and simply let them pass. Don't engage, just let them go. Let the mind slow down and just be in the moment. No focusing on the past nor the future. Just be in the moment.

Ajahn then guided us in a thirty minute meditation encouraging us to allow our minds to become settled and peaceful. Ajahn reminded us that within each of us this mind state exists and can only be found within us.

After meditation Ajahn opened to questions.

Ajahn Santutthi | The Practise Of Meditation | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

February 12, 2020

February 2020

Ajahn Santutthi talked to us about being a Buddhist monk in the modern world and how it helps to cope with the stresses that come with our modern world. Meditation, over time, allows our monks and us, to leave these stresses behind. If only for a short time, just to allow our minds to relax and quieten.

Ajahn then guided us in a thirty minute meditation well suited to all by encouraging us to simply relax. Make ourselves comfortable and detach from our hectic lives.

After meditation Ajahn opened to questions and further encouraged us to be kind to our minds. Don't make meditation a job, chore or task. Just allow your mind to be your mind and relax.

January 9, 2020

December 2019

Ajahn Santutthi related a simile by the Buddha about mangoes. Rather than picking the fruit, the Buddha patiently waited for the fruit to fall. Ajahn encourages us all to do the same regards our meditation practise, be patient and wait for the deeper states to occur naturally.

Ajahn then guided us in a thirty minute meditation well suited to all. Ajahn then related Buddha's earlier practise of meditation when he was trying many different techniques in his effort to find the best meditation.

When growing a fruit tree, you need to grow it and look after it, before you can get any fruit from it. Meditation is no different. If you want to see the fruits of meditation, then Ajahn Santutthi advises you to practice meditation everyday.

December 20, 2019

December 2019

Ajahn Santutthi suggests we use our meditation to get off the treadmill that we often feel we are on in life and just relax in meditation. Ajahn further suggests we give ourselves the opportunity to relax, to forget about the past, not dream of the future and just relax in the present moment.

Ajahn the guided us in a thirty minute meditation well suited to all before reminding us that nothing lasts for-ever.

Ajahn Santutthi | Add Value to Meditation | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

Ajahn Santutthi | Add Value to Meditation | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

December 3, 2019

2nd December 2019

Ajahn Santutthi recently rode a bus to Albany. The trip took 5 hours. Whilst he managed the trip by meditating he recognised that for many of us learning to meditate, that it at times seems an endless and boring trip. Ajahn encourages us to add value to our meditation by thinking of something that makes us happy. Or brings to mind an enjoyable moment in our lives before we commence meditation. By doing this the trip seems less of a drag, a lot more pleasant and not so long a trip.

Ajahn then lead the group in a slightly longer than usual meditation. After meditation Ajahn opened to Q&A before continuing his talk on his recent trip to Albany.

This meditation is well suited to intermediate and experienced.

Ajahn Santutthi | Our Habitual Nature | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram
Ajahn Santutthi | Watching The Breath | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

Ajahn Santutthi | Watching The Breath | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

November 14, 2019

Recorded at Dhammayanaram Monastery, home of the Cambodian Buddhist Society of WA November 2019.

Ajahn Santutthi started our regular Monday night meditation with a brief talk on breath meditation and our habit of “monkey mind”. We start by looking at our breath and often find we are altering it just by looking at it. Or, we start by gently, softly watching out breathing then find we are off with the fairies, the days events, tomorrows shopping etc. It just takes practice. Ajahn prefers not to use such terms as focus, because it suggests we concentrate harder than needed. New meditators often get a headache when starting out by trying to hard. Ajahn reminds us that it’s not a task or chore. Just relax and give yourself time through practice to get there.

Ajahn then lead the group in a 30 minute meditation asking us to remind ourselves regularly, suggesting 5 minutes or so, to return to the breathing. Over time it will occur naturally with not having to focus or concentrate. This meditation is well suited to beginners and experienced alike.

After meditation Ajahn opened to Q&A.
