2001-04-14 The First Noble Truth: What's Noble About Dukkha 66:46
Ajahn Sumedho
The Buddha's teachings are all about awakening to the truth of suffering, or dukkha, and finding the end to it. Our potential for awakening begins to be realized when we shift our attitude to take an interest in suffering, learning from the way it is, and understanding how it gets created. Opening to the truth about suffering, we also open our awareness to something greater -- the ultimate reality.

2001-04-13 Living With The Reality Of Aging, Sickness And Death 52:41
Ajahn Candasiri
Our society emphasizes fitness, strength, youth, and vitality, and yet the body runs its own course. We can do things to keep it strong and healthy, but these types of measures are limited. We are blessed to have the Buddhist teachings because they encourage us to come to terms with aging, sickness and death -- fundamental truths of our existence.

Christina Feldman
Because of the power of our emotions, we are called upon in this practice to cultivate emotional mindfulness and emotional freedom. What is the interface then between experiencing our feelings fully and maintaining emotional equanimity or balance? How can we relate to our emotional life in a way that allows the creative power of our hearts to awaken?

The Buddha explained how concentration, energy and equanimity work together to help purify a practitioner's mind over time. How can we wisely develop and bring to balance these qualities essential to waking up?
