Ajahn Brahmali | Meditation Needs Perseverance | The Armadale Meditation Group

Ajahn Brahmali | Meditation Needs Perseverance | The Armadale Meditation Group

March 13, 2019

The Armadale Meditation Group doesn’t often get to see Ajahn Brahmali so when we do we are very grateful.

Ajahn began the night by relating a story of a visit from Ajahn Ganah to Bodhinyanna Monastery. So as not to spoil the story I will stop here. Ajahn Brahmali told this story to highlight how meditation can change people and other's perception of them. We become happier, more patient and more relaxed, but it takes practice and perseverance.

Ajahn then lead the full house through a very peaceful and relaxing 30 minute meditation suitable to both experienced and beginners alike.

After meditation Ajahn opened to comments and questions before continuing his talk on how we change with meditation.

You may have questions about meditation, but sometimes you won't need them answered by your teacher. Ajahn Brahm explains this is because when your mind becomes very still, the answer becomes self-evident.

The Ordinary | Ajahn Nyanadhammo

The Ordinary | Ajahn Nyanadhammo

March 8, 2019

Most people in the world want action and stimulation. Peace and stillness seem very boring to most people in the world. But in the peace and stillness of meditation very powerful and profound things can occur, just as when Siddhartha Gotama sat in meditation under the Bodhi tree at Bodh Gaya and freed his mind from all traces of suffering and illusion. Ajahn Nyanadhammo talks about how the seemingly ordinary acts are where we can find the path to awakening.
