2022-12-09 Papañca (proliferation) 1:33:09
Bhante Sujato
Guided meditation of awareness of the messy mind, being aware of consciousness brings fearlessness. Dhamma talk on papañca with reference to The Honey Cake sutta MN18 and Concept and Reality by Ven. Ñāṇananda's analysis of MN18 16.1. How venerable Kaccāna presents a sequence where the self slowly emerges, creating the person who then is beset by papañca; nouns turn to verbs.

Recalling our moral behaviour, our generosity, we experience the joyful energy that results. Citta enters samadhi when it is gladdened.

2022-12-10 Q&A 36:37
Ajahn Amaro
Questions are précised - 00:08 Q1 You said arahants can feel happiness without attachment, also that happiness is a suffering in disguise, and that it also comes from giving. Are these all different forms of happiness? 05:47 Q2 I’ve read a lot of Persian poetry especially Attar of Nishapur and Rumi. There, I read that “desire” for union pushes you forward and is actually the path to liberation. But the Second Noble Truth says that we have to get rid of desire / craving. Can you speak to this please? 15:01 Q3 Frequently I find that some annoying behavior by friends that I think I have processed and let go of returns if, for example, they renew their teasing at a future meeting. 19:18 Q4 Whatever we see or experience has happened sometime back. It seems we don’t partake of anything that happens around us. This is discomforting. Can you comment please? 27:13 Q5 Can you speak about how Mahayana and Theravada look at the idea of the second turning of the wheel. 34:00 Q6 What is the difference between the two types of concentration the Buddha had, one when he was studying with his two teachers and his experience under the tree watching his father?
