2013-05-03 A Terrain Beyond Boundaries 5:42
Ayya Medhanandi
Use the practice to understand the boundaries, structures, and limits of our lives to locate that terrain within us which is beyond boundaries. We go to it by inclining the mind towards stopping, taking precepts and fully arriving in the present, in the sanctuary of now. We stop in the silence and with curiousity and wonder, investigate the true meaning of our life.

Ayya Medhanandi, Ajahn Punnadhammo
Here the eight precepts are explained as essential supports for developing our moral restraint with ethical vows and our sense restraint through our commitment to renunciation.

Ayya Medhanandi
Meticulous appreciative attention to the breath helps us tame the wildness of the mind using mindfulness to brake when we are careening off course. Just this is a blessing as we naturally discover a joyous presence with every moment of seeing the nature of this mind-body formation, it's impermanence, suffering, and emptiness. By polishing the mirror of the mind, we enter the light of Truth.
