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.

1988-05-09 The Path of Direct Experience 59:24
Thought is an abstraction – we step back from experience and form an idea, opinion, judgment. This Path steers away from thought, and inclines towards direct, felt experienced. Enter experience and work from within the doubt, confusion, aggression with a clear, pure Buddha mind, not the thinking mind. With this unification of mind there is the end of suffering.

1988-05-07 Why meditate? 1:13:12
The phrase “the way it is” offers a snapshot of the changing experience of the mind as it considers basic questions of existence. Meditation offers a way to be with body feelings and reveals the steady and tranquil energy there. Meditation also reveals the compelling and default practice of the mind that is always identifying a “self” which creates anxiety, nervousness, trying too hard and judgements. Seeing this default mind process we see the Buddha’s concept of “suffering” and this leads in turn to comfort and confidence with understanding the statement “the way it is”. We can recall the Buddha said that nibanna is in fact realizable here and now, in this life. exact date uncertain
