2020-01-11 Anattā Is the Way Out (Evening Public Talk) 52:12
  Ajahn Sucitto
The unawakened worldly mind seeks to accumulate. It generates a sense of self from holding on. The Anattalakkhaṇa Sutta points to release and letting go. We practice standing back from phenomena, allowing things to move and shift without reacting to them. Just witnessing and awake – this is liberation.
