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.

with Laura Bridgman
Questions are précised and some are read later into the file to protect participants’ anonymity. 00:00 Your explanation of sati as putting a ring around proliferation makes sense to me.

2022-05-24 Currents in the Citta - Sati 54:00
Considering the structures of the day we can release those that are not useful and direct them to discover citta and an inner balance, not just 'the next thing'.

2022-05-23 Sati - The Third Indriya 56:19
Sati-mindfulness, or bearing in mind – is the third indriya. It is a powerful ally for liberation. With this we come out of old habits and find freshness, meaning, potency. You feel where your strength arises.

With standing it's difficult to drift off. Feeling connection to and the strength of the ground and using the bones for support rather than muscle.

2022-05-22 Q&A 36:14
with Laura Bridgman
Questions are précised and some are read later into the file to protect participants’ anonymity. 00:00 Can you say more about implicit memory; 16:37 Can you speak about energy please? It seems many different words are being used for this one term. Is there a history of an energy practice in Theravada? 25:38 I am experiencing joy and contentment but my mind is still providing the running commentary. Seems like the ego is trying to make the contentment about itself.

The retreat theme acknowledges we need allies in cultivating awareness, something outside our normal self structure but available, in spite of the personality. Aspiration/ faith are the first of these.

(Questions are précised and read later into the file to protect participants’ anonymity) 00:12 Q1 One-pointedness; 08:22 Q2 Can you comment on the widely taught practice of one pointed concentration; 16:31 Q3 I struggle with narratives filled with self-limiting beliefs I create in meditation and daily life. Can you help with this please?; 30:31 Q4 When do we choose open curiosity versus directed compassion or loving kindness? What is the relationship between them and their utility?
