  Donald Rothberg

2019-05-28 The Unbiased and Unwavering Heart (Upekkhā) 61:00
  Ajahn Sucitto
Cultivating equanimity (upekkhā) begins with touching into primal sympathy. As this develops, we are more able to meet experience without shrinking from it or becoming feverish for it. This paves the way for insight and release.

2019-05-27 Learning to Linger and Appreciate (Muditā) 59:27
  Ajahn Sucitto
Liberation begins with appreciation of one’s own heart, one’s sensitivity. Learn to linger in it, and speak to it with kindness. Gladness and ease naturally arise, and the mind becomes concentrated. This is the natural Dhamma process.

2019-05-26 Strengthening through Compassion (Karuṇā) 50:52
  Ajahn Sucitto
Citta is made stronger and deeper through cultivating patience and resolution. It gains an imperturbable stillness and serenity that lets things pass through. Steady in the face of the pleasant and unpleasant alike, this ‘soft strength’ refuses to give way to the tides of ill will.
