2017-03-26 Truth Beyond Happiness and Dukkha 39:24
Ajahn Sucitto describes how the pursuit of certainty and comfort acts as a barrier to the deep discharge of the pain of being.

When approached with honesty and accuracy, there is the possibility to experience what is real, the unconditioned.

2017-03-25 Offering and Receiving: Training in the Relational Domain 31:11
Ajahn Sucitto reflects on how ways of relating at the monastery provide training for accessing the true place of citta.
