Ajahn Amaro
00:34 Q1 Can you give some examples of non-formal practice through the day. 06:23 Q2 What is helpful in practicing walking meditation? 11:40 Q3 Why do we practice walking when we have sitting meditation? 12:46 Q4 Why is it that the object of meditation has to be something of the body? Could it be a rock for example? 13:37 Q5 When I meditate I hear a loud inner sound, the breathing, heat beat and blood pumping and body movements. It’s difficult to concentrate on any one thing. 16:03 Q6 Is stream entry a deeper flow state or something completely different? 16:23 Q7 How can we differentiate between skilful and unskilful doubt. 19:00 Q8 In the guided meditation you led us inside where we were resting somewhere. Are there any creative techniques to access that? 20:21 Q9 When you asked us to look for the person /that who is aware. Commonly this is supposed to be usually in the head right? Can it be outside the body and are there ways to access that? 21:36 Q10 You mentioned you were from New Hampshire. Is that attached to Ajahn Amaro?

Ajahn Amaro
Questions are précised - 00:12 Q1 My practice of forgiveness turns into shame when I consider how I ever did that to that person. 08:58 Q2 I have had a health ailment for about a decade and there are moments of deep pain. I’ve gone past “Why me?” but I find I am very angry. I also find I easily dismiss other people’s pain. 20:51 Q3 Can you explain more about the difference between Dhammaniyāmatā and the Idappaccayatā? 29:27 Q4 What’s your view on euthanasia? Also – how can we plan to live in a commune rather than a hospice as we age? 40:05 Q5 What about organ donation? 43:40 Q6 What is euthanasia and what is taking active steps to expedite death? And what about people who decide not to continue treatment that prolongs life? 47:28 Q7 What about palliative care? 49:00 Q8 Are there any residential retreat places for parents with their children? I struggle with leaving my child alone and the problem of child care. 50:34 Q9 Regarding the old lady who came to Ajahn Chah for advice, [it seems like she was advised to practice] anatta. 55:34 Q10 That which is observing the five khandas, is that called dhamma itself?
