Bhante Aranavihara | Why Am I Meditating? | The Armadale Meditation Group

November 14, 2019

Bhante Aranavihara encouraged us to ask ourselves why we meditate? Bhante then gave a brief talk on some of the reasons we meditate and how best to deal with them once meditation commences. Bhante asked us to remind ourselves every five minutes or so to come back to our meditation object, not forcefully, but gently.

Bhante begins the meditation by using a body scan and asking us to let our bodies settle down. After the body scan Bhante suggests we shift our attention to either the breath or our metta object.

After the meditation Bhante opened to Q&A.

Ajahn Santutthi | Watching The Breath | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

Ajahn Santutthi | Watching The Breath | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

November 14, 2019

Recorded at Dhammayanaram Monastery, home of the Cambodian Buddhist Society of WA November 2019.

Ajahn Santutthi started our regular Monday night meditation with a brief talk on breath meditation and our habit of “monkey mind”. We start by looking at our breath and often find we are altering it just by looking at it. Or, we start by gently, softly watching out breathing then find we are off with the fairies, the days events, tomorrows shopping etc. It just takes practice. Ajahn prefers not to use such terms as focus, because it suggests we concentrate harder than needed. New meditators often get a headache when starting out by trying to hard. Ajahn reminds us that it’s not a task or chore. Just relax and give yourself time through practice to get there.

Ajahn then lead the group in a 30 minute meditation asking us to remind ourselves regularly, suggesting 5 minutes or so, to return to the breathing. Over time it will occur naturally with not having to focus or concentrate. This meditation is well suited to beginners and experienced alike.

After meditation Ajahn opened to Q&A.

Living a whole life | Ajahn Vayama

Living a whole life | Ajahn Vayama

November 7, 2019

Whilst the practice of meditation is very important, so too is the basics of how we relate to the people in our lives every day. The quality of the relationships that we develop with our family, work colleagues and the people we meet with every day is going to have a strong bearing on the quality of our minds and the quality of our lives, so it pays to give wise attention to this according to Ajahn Vayama.
