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.
2022-10-15 Arrows and Circles - Shaping Intention 29:52
The mind’s energies and activations may contradict each other but what unifies them is the body's energy, its life force and understanding them is key to meditation and the development of mindfulness.

2022-10-15 The Illusory Nature of Objective Reality 59:54

2022-10-14 Understanding Recollection of Buddha Dhamma Sangha 19:33

2022-10-14 Settling in-Find Balance and Contentment 50:59
Adjusting to the external space, getting comfortable in yourself, find the place internally where you can be okay with what's happening externally and internally. Focus on this and make much of it, experiencing the body's energy flows.

2022-10-14 Reflections on the Heart and Silent Meditation 17:06
We use the body to help the heart open from withdrawn states. What is felt, what is sensed? Linger in that territory and keep noticing.

01:32 Where can I get a print copy of your book Breathing Like a Buddha? (also PDF here: https://cdn.amaravati.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/27/Breathing-Like-a-Buddha-Web.pdf); 02:24 How can I contribute some dana to you? (also see here: https://www.cittaviveka.org/online-donations and navigate to Chithurst); 04:04 When you speak of the energy body, is that the embodied sense of self? 06:35 What did you mean when you said “The space within and without the body where mental formations form”? 11:33 Could you speak about the phrases the Buddha uses in the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta? 13:12 What causes unskilful behaviour or though to arise and to stop? 20:28 How can I work for the benefit for other people without being fearful of making mistakes and hurting others? 22:42 How can I turn the mind from outside to inside with other people around? 27:51 I experience constant internal discussions, comments and judgements about past events. What do I do with this sense of self? 34:02 How do I follow Ajahn’s suggestion to make resolution and intention without getting into goal-seeking on the other hand?
