The Middle Way | Ajahn Brahm | 11 June 2010

October 15, 2021

Ajahn Brahm elaborates on one of the pillars of Buddhism: The Middle Way, pointing out that it is very easy to wander off on a path of too much harshness to your body and mind (asceticism) or too much indulgence. Ajahn starts off by reflecting upon his time as a young western monk in Thailand.

Ajahn Brahm reminds us that the core teaching of the Buddha is suffering and the end of suffering and in this talk he covers a trilogy of topics:

  1. How to deal with disasters, such as a recent oil spill in California.
  2. How to interpret this middle path as a way of dealing with the disasters of life, and the middle way between indulgence and asceticism.
  3. How to apply the Buddhist teachings to your daily life
