Ajahn Jhanarato talks to us tonight about our ability to meditate when the environment around us is noisy or less than ideal. Ajahn refers back to occasions in his own experience where noise was very much present. Ajahn equates this to our minds after a busy normal day. Our minds tend to be like a market place or even a snow globe. All we need do is sit and allow our minds to settle. Using this settling time to also adjust and relax our bodies, gives rise to our mind clearing, settling, leading to a much better more relaxed meditation.

Ajahn then lead the group in a thirty minute meditation encouraging us all to leave the busy day behind and just allow our mind to settle, becoming peacefully relaxed.

After meditation Ajahn opened to questions before continuing his talk.

Ajahn Cittapalo asks us to be grateful of the time we have to simply meditate. We live such busy lives that often to have these small moments is difficult. So to appreciate such moments for the opportunity they are, gives us the initial thought to base our meditation on. Let go of the controller and simply watch what comes our way, then let it go. Be it sound, smell or body feelings. See the thought arise, don't engage and let it pass. Time to rest.

Ajahn and the group then meditated for thirty minutes in silence. So, this meditation is best suited to an experienced meditators.

After meditation Ajahn reminded us that when we are suffering with physical pains that it really isn't a good idea to remain in a fixed posture. It is our body and we are allowed to stand, walk and move about. Forcing ourselves to remain stationary during meditation doesn't help when there is pain. Stand, walk around, be comfortable. Meditation is a time to rest, not add another burden to our lives.

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 Jhanarato commenced the evening by reciting one of the Buddha's early sutta regarding Metta Suttacentral”. Ajahn did this to encourage us to commence our meditation from the present moment and with Metta in-mind. By doing this we leave the past where it belongs, in the past and the future does take our attention away from the present moment.

Ajahn doesn't use mantras in his meditation, but rather just focuses on present moment awareness. Though he does acknowledge that for many of us, the use of a mantra is helpful. Ajahn then lead the group in a thirty minute meditation well suited to beginners and experienced a like.

After meditation Ajahn opened to Q&A before reciting another of Buddha's early sutta's Suttacentral in response to a question.

Ajahn Cittapalo reminds us that meditation is not about stopping the mind nor fixating on a single thing. Rather we should be kindly aware of what is happening with our mind. Practice just watching what is happening. Don't try to change it, simply acknowledge it and let it go. As we practice this more often, the inner monologue occurs less. Allowing us to enjoy a peaceful relaxing meditation.

The group, having all meditated previously, meditated for thirty minutes in silence.

After meditation Ajahn drew our attention to how happy we feel after meditation and how good the general feeling.

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.

Ajahn Cittapalo asked us to be grateful to ourselves for making the effort to be there on a Monday night and meditating. As we struggle with meditation, we often forget to be grateful to ourselves for at least making the effort.

Ajahn then guided us in a thirty minute meditation well suited to all. Ajahn then spoke to us on right thought and his two favourite verses from the suttas.

Ajahn Jhanarato spoke on anicca [impermanence], an apt subject given the current situation here in Australia. Ajahn spoke on this subject, not to say that we should not be concerned about the climate, but more to point out that it may not affect us and that it keeps us from the present moment. Not thinking of a possible future that may not occur, nor dwelling in the past that may disturb. Ajahn read a sutta from “In The Buddha's Words” by Bhikkhu Bodhi that covers the subject very well.

Ajahn lead the group in a 30 minute relaxing meditation reminding us to not dwell in the past nor become anxious about the future. This meditation is well suited to beginners and experienced a like.

After meditation Ajahn opened to Q&A before continuing to speak on a variety of subjects.
