Abandoning Desire By Using Desire | Ajahn Vayama

May 8, 2019

Ajahn Vayama uses the Buddhist teaching of the Iddhipadas (Roads to Success), especially the quality ofaditthana (determination) which is a wholesome desire to overcome the unwholesome desires of sensual craving which lead to suffering. In this way Ajahn Vayama outlines what type of desire is useful in Buddhist practice, and what desire is an obstacle and burden.

Teachings are available for downloading from the BSWA website, the BSWA Youtube Channel, the BSWA Podcast, and Deeper Dhamma Podcast.
