2022-05-19 The Problem with Resisting Reality: The Possibility of Real Freedom 52:21
James Baraz
As much as we would like things to be a certain way, we have limited control over the way things are. Even though that may be apparent to all Dharma students who have some practice under their belt, the mind still gets caught in the habit of attachment to things being a certain way. This week we will explore what gets in the way, how we can open to the way things really are and the radical shift that can occur within us when we see through this self-created prison.

2022-05-20 The skilful use of precepts 11:10
Ajahn Sucitto
Refuges and precepts provide a field of conscience and concern that wards off carelessness, imbalance, distractedness and negativity – and helps in moving towards a true norm that won’t let us down.

2022-05-20 Guided death contemplation, Dhamma talk on Carrion sutta – Amaganda 1:40:22
Bhante Sujato, Bhante Akāliko
From Harris Park. Death contemplation guided by Bhante Akāliko. Dhamma talk by Bhante Sujato: Carrion sutta (Snp 2.2) Amaganda: literally "raw stench". A (presumably) hard-core vegan ascetic challenges the Buddha about his eating a cooked meal with meat. The Buddha's response: a conduct of practicing the four Brahma Viharas is what a monastic / ascetic lifestyle is about.
