Dhammaloka Book Club: ”Opening the Door of Your Heart” | Venerable Sunyo

May 17, 2022

Venerable Sunyo discusses his favourite stories in the book, sharing anecdotes from his childhood and meditation practice at the Dhammaloka Books Club's 5th session on the 14 May 2022.

Venerable shares the attitude that he uses when he meditates, "Just by sitting down and being there, the meditation is already a success and done, and there is nothing further to change or to get somewhere". The mind then gets peaceful right away, as we are opening the door of our heart to whatever is going on in our mind.

Also keep an ear out for Venerable's amusing encounter with "MULCH" in the monastery.

This book is available from the Dhammaloka Library.

Dhammaloka Book Club is usually held on the second Saturday of every month from 1.45 pm to 2.30 pm, please check the BSWA event page for the latest updates.
