Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks
Ajahn Sucitto
As a monk, I bring a strong commitment, along with the renunciate flavor, to the classic Buddhist teachings. I play with ideas, with humor and a current way of expressing the teachings, but I don't dilute them.

2011-10-12 Openess Merging Into The Deathless 24:58
Different maps are given to track the trajectory from suffering to non-suffering. The themes are similar – finding resources to come into the present, meet what arises, not get stuck, know that no matter how pleasant or unpleasant this will pass – and we’re left with this openness. Trust the openness, where things end by themselves. This is the deathless.

2011-10-10 Training The Mind In The Renunciant Form 20:33
Training in renunciation helps us know that nothing belongs to us except for kamma. What’s important is knowing what is skillful and unskillful, and to keep setting aside what’s not skillful. Come to know when the mind is coming from purity or confusion. Faith is a support in the midst of confusion and overwhelm.

2011-10-09 Guided Meditation - Simple Awareness 49:41
Recollecting the Buddha’s awakening, we also sit, firmly, simply. When the forces of thought and feeling come, we sit peacefully, refusing to fight, run away or get involved. Letting it all move through, where is the stillness? Clarity is the mark of awakened ones, knowing exactly what is arising – naming it, sensing it.

2011-10-08 Fundamental Openess - Understanding Faith 21:36
Openness, the willingness to meet what arises, is one of our basic resources as human beings. The ability to open what is pleasant and unpleasant alike, knowing we can benefit, learn from it, gives a certain confidence. Mindfulness of body is our workshop to cultivate that ability to open to and bear with painful feeling. Not resisting or fighting it, just sustaining awareness and knowing it for what it is.
