Hard Questions To A Soft Teacher | Ajahn Brahmavamso & Venerable Canda | 27-06-2020

June 28, 2020

This is a recording of live stream event organised by Venerable Canda of Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project in England. It was an unprecedented opportunity for participants to ask pressing and deep questions to Meditation Master Ajahn Brahm (in Perth, Western Australia) renowned for his kindness, humour, wisdom and warmth. Topics include unfulfilled love, kamma and rebirth, gender equity in the monastic alms line, jhanas, non-self, how to relate to family members who hurt or anger us and heavenly beings! Do see it all (in increments?) including the last twelve minutes where Ajahn and Venerable Canda discuss the exciting Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project in England and how you can be involved.

The session starts with a brief introduction and Dhamma Reflection, followed by Q&A, a short meditation in the middle and further Q&A in the second half with Ajahn Brahm extending into overtime as is characteristically generous of him!
