Scratching In The Wrong Place | Ajahn Brahmavamso

June 29, 2019

If you’ve got an itchy head, would you scratch your bum? Ajahn Brahm explains that one of the elements of the spiritual path is the attention and wisdom to recognise where and when you have a problem and thereby directing your efforts in that area – rather than the wrong area – in order to get a the right result. And ultimately we need to recognise the causes of happiness and suffering within ourselves, rather than blaming others for our problems.

Ajahn Brahm talks about the mental origins of addictions and obsessions, and the pathway to overcoming them.

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