gift of the teachings
 
Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks
Ajahn Sucitto
As a monk, I bring a strong commitment, along with the renunciate flavor, to the classic Buddhist teachings. I play with ideas, with humor and a current way of expressing the teachings, but I don't dilute them.
2016-11-12 Fields and forms – the play of consciousness 43:56
From awareness in the field of sense data, consciousness selects an object. That process generates a subject. In the split between subject and object, demons arise. The true subject has no object, and cannot be tracked. This is presence, awareness.

2016-11-12 Chanting: the movement into harmony 10:43
Chanting is trans-rational - it’s not just what it means but what it does. By incorporating the body’s emotionally sensitive energies, and by attuning to others, it brings us to harmony.

2016-11-11 Acknowledgement of Fields 56:27
Experience arises as ‘fields’ – for example the visual field. Skilful fields – ‘places’ to dwell in - are necessary and can be generated - for example the moral field, the devotional / sacred field and the embodied field.

2016-09-15 The Wellspring of Citta 1:32:14
(Begins with 30 min guided meditation) With self view there is a tendency to meet experience with pre-formed responses of who I am, why they are, and what's needed. Orienting around citta allows a more natural and spontaneous response, one where empathy and preciousness are infused in intentions and actions.

2016-09-15 The Kamma of Meditation 60:05

2016-09-15 The Floods of Contact 43:21
Contact is not a small matter - it can trigger a flood of perceptions and unskillful responses. These triggers can be found and unplugged through a practice of grounded embodiment and skillful attention and engagement.

2016-09-14 Guided Meditation: Held by Ground 31:54
When we're on the move, ground can feel fragile and shaky. We can absorb into the ground beneath us that is given and welcomes us. Notice the sensations and mental tones as you relax and rest into being held.
