Often we find faults in our life, partners and ourselves and overlook the good parts. Ajahn Brahm offers a new perspective; which is to see what we think are bad parts as opportunities to learn and grow. Ajahn encourages us to love ourselves (faults and all) and to develop a joy finding mind (a mind that sees the positives, rather than the faults).

Inspiration | Ajahn Brahmavamso | 5 February 2010

Inspiration | Ajahn Brahmavamso | 5 February 2010

May 7, 2021

Ajahn Brahm talks about how inspiration can energize our meditation practice and allow us to go beyond the boundaries we normally set for ourselves. Ajahn says inspiration is one of the most important parts of the spiritual life because it is difficult to be kind, generous, loving, forgiving and so on without authentic examples of great acts of generosity and kindness. It is inspiration which encourages us to add our own acts of beauty to this world and those acts spread inspiration to others and make this world a beautiful place.

The View That Frees | Ajahn Brahmali | 16 January 2021

The View That Frees | Ajahn Brahmali | 16 January 2021

April 17, 2021

Ajahn Brahmali offers a talk from Bodhinyana Monastery, Western Australia online to Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project, in the UK. In this talk, Ajahn Brahmali defines right (and wrong!) view and helps us understand how views come about. He shows how we can develop right view to inform and empower our meditation, freeing our minds from the five hindrances - and eventually freeing ourselves from all erroneous views - to experience a peace beyond the conditioned world.

All of us hold views based on our conditioning, which then reinforce our perceptions and thoughts, essentially creating our world. Buddhist practice is about learning how to steer our mind away from suffering and in the direction of freedom - whether inside or outside of meditation - and gradually align our views with the way things are.

Right view at the preliminary level is the foundation of the path and helps guide our intentions and behaviour in wholesome ways, gradually making deep meditation both possible and productive of liberating insight. Once we penetrate the Four Noble Truths, our view of reality becomes perfected and forms the basis for the successive stages of liberation.
