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.

2005-03-31 Self and the Plane of Becoming 59:11
The larger plane of becoming is potent with tendencies that give rise to the person. This person becomes formed from our worries, fears, compulsions – it’s a restricted self. We practice widening into that larger citta realm and cultivating enlightenment factors to form around instead. This is how we take responsibility for what we put out into the world, and to change our kamma.

2005-03-16 Ultimate Stability 53:14
We seek stability in this ongoing pageant of being where we only find relative stability, maybe. Ultimate stability is found through non-feeding, relinquishing. This holy life is lived to be freed from being. Suffering comes about from clinging; the end of grasping is the end of suffering.

2005-03-12 Ceasing of Self 47:22
The world is on fire with becoming. It’s not so deliberate or conscious, but an involuntary reflex. Hold the spacious openness rather than the objects, notice how things shift, change and pass through. It’s not actually oneself, it’s patterning. In Dhamma practice these patterns have to be exposed so they can be seen compassionately, spaciously, calmly and allowed to unfold and give their energy back into awareness.

2005-02-26 Making One’s Own Mind a Refuge 37:21
Mind is like a substance – it can be made heavy and gritty or spacious and smooth based on how it’s inclined. Incline towards calming and soothing to release stuck energies and release mind’s natural goodness. Intention is something you can have some choice over – you can tune your mind in to the depraved or to the blessed. You can make your mind a refuge.
