2020-08-23 Citta as Conjurer and Healer 38:56
  Ajahn Sucitto
We don’t so much experience phenomena, but the citta affected by phenomena. The sense of “I am” keeps us fascinated and hypnotized by the resulting feelings and reactions. The process of purification is to clear citta of defilements and hinderances. Cultivation of samadhi and suffusion of wholesome qualities are means for purification and healing.

2020-08-22 Metta, Mantra, Addiction, Recovery: Three Questions 21:39
  Ayya Medhanandi
We are braver than we know and can endure more than we realize if there is a readiness to renounce and be creative. Learn to refine, adapt, repeat teachings until they are embodied, and deeply listen to all that life offers. Reaching out to others according to our skills and strength, connect and offer guidance if it is welcome. Compassion born of growing wisdom will be our trustworthy compass.

2020-08-21 Friendship and Freedom 33:47
  Ayya Medhanandi
Two overarching supports for gaining the fruits of the Path are mental purity and spiritual friendship. Consummate virtue and prize virtuous friends, the highest being the Blessed One himself. Emulate his conduct and mental practices in everyday life. Gradually transform mundane right view into transcendent right view and do the same for all eight limbs of the Path. And as they ripen, you will enter into the stream of transcendence.

2020-08-21 Empty the Basket 15:10
  Ayya Medhanandi
Let us hone our expertise to witness the charade of gain and loss arising each moment. Seeing the eight worldly winds, impermanent, not giving in when the mind perches in 'self', purify wrong view, empty the basket, and begin here where we are, balanced, the Middle Way.
