Feel Free to Waste My Valuable Time | Bhante Mudito | 24 May 2020

September 26, 2021

In his last talk for some time at NBM, Bhante Mudito reflects on how we use our time: skillful practices (gratitude, kindness, service) vs unskillful (anger, lazy habits). Drawing on experiences from his younger days, and from the last two years at Newbury, he illustrates how cultivating certain actions and attitudes can have a beneficial effect, even during difficult and challenging times.

Dhamma Talk - Buddhist Mind-States Management | Bhante Bodhidhaja | 24 Feb 2019

Dhamma Talk - Buddhist Mind-States Management | Bhante Bodhidhaja | 24 Feb 2019

July 25, 2021

In this talk, Bhante Bodhidhaja focuses on relating with difficult or negative states of mind. Once a problem has arisen, we learn how to "let it be" and "let it go". Bhante goes on to define the problem clearly by explaining unwholesome habits and difficult mind states. He defines the origin (samudaya) and ending (Atthangama) of these mind states. He describes it as Priming, triggering and overreaction. By not feeding it, giving it space, gaining perspective, we can extinguish these negative mind states. He explains relating to anger in terms of gratification, danger and the escape from it. In summary, through the practice of four great efforts of "Let it be", "Let it go", "let it grow", "let it show" we can cultivate wholesome mind states and abandon unwholesome mind states.

From Original To Traditional | Ajahn Brahmali | 9 March 2017

July 8, 2021

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.
