Ariya B. Baumann's Dharma Talks
Ariya B. Baumann
Ariya B. Baumann left her career as a music and dance teacher in favour of her deep yearing to understand herself and the world. Based on her many years of practice, twenty-one of them as a nun in the Burmese tradition, she now lays a strong emphasis on the practice of loving-kindness (including metta chants) as a basis for the vipassana meditation practice. She has translated a number of Dhamma books from Burmese to English and German, among these are Mahasi Sayadaw’s ‘Manual of Insight’. She is a co-founder and president of ‘Metta In Action’ which supports a variety of social and medical projects throughout Burma, especially nunneries.

2018-08-15 Death – Come and Take My Hand 46:24
What is our relation to death? To our death? Are we prepared for this certain event in our life? The frequent reflection on the inevitability of death sets free the energy to do what is meaningful and beneficial in our life. Our priorities become clear and we do not waste time with trivial things.
