Ajahn Cittapalo | Your Intention and Motivation to Meditate – The Armadale Meditation Group

Ajahn Cittapalo | Your Intention and Motivation to Meditate – The Armadale Meditation Group

March 6, 2019

We don’t see Ajahn Cittapalo often enough at The Armadale Meditation Group. Ajahn is particularly good at delivering instructions on meditation that are easily understood by beginners and those new to meditation.

Ajahn began his talk tonight by making us all laugh when he used our headset microphone for the first time. This had the immediate effect of relaxing us all and bringing us into the present moment. Ajahn then commenced his talk and instruction by asking us to consider what our intentions and motivations are before we meditate or, in the case of “newbies”, (as he calls those of us who are fairly new to meditation), to look carefully at our intentions and motivations before we sit down and attempt to meditate. If we do this for a minute or two, and try not to place undue pressure on ourselves, the meditation becomes less of a task and thus a more pleasant thing to do. No-one wants to add another task to their day.

After giving us instructions and describing the benefits of meditation to the “newbies”, Ajahn lead the group through a body sweep and peaceful meditation intended to help us simply relax and look inward. This meditation is well suited to beginners and those new to meditation.

After meditation Ajahn continued his talk on those things that hinder our meditations. He also asked us to consider trying different meditations and even different teachers before giving up. Ajahn talked on those things that we humans allow ourselves to become addicted to, suggesting that an addiction to meditation would be more beneficial. Ajahn further encouraged us to look within our own minds to resolve those things that bother us so deeply.

Buddhist Idea Of Consciousness | Ajahn Brahmavamso

Buddhist Idea Of Consciousness | Ajahn Brahmavamso

March 3, 2019

Ajahn Brahm talks about the Buddhist idea of consciousness. Ajahn compares this with Aristotle's view of the mind as "the common sense" (amongst all the senses), and how this has caused Western philosophy to become materialistic, causing Western society to be one "where things are more important than feelings or people." Talk given on Ajahn's visit to Buddhist Society of Victoria (BSV), in June 2015
