    Who’s to Blame for my Suffering?

    Who’s to Blame for my Suffering?

    When we suffer, we mostly look to the world outside of us to find a cause—the nasty things people say; the inconsiderate things they can do. But this is looking in the wrong place, as the cause is inside of ourselves.

    Love for Oneself

    Love for Oneself

    Ajahn Anan teaches us of the importance of giving metta to oneself first, because if our hearts are full of suffering, we aren't able to relieve the suffering of others. Keeping good morality is also a way of developing kindness, as through this we harm neither ourselves nor others. Ajahn then goes on to tell stories from the time of the Buddha that illustrate the importance of kindness and morality.

    May All Beings Be Free from Suffering

    May All Beings Be Free from Suffering

    In this videoconference talk from 8 January 2021, Ajahn Anan discusses compassion.

    "In reference to the compassion as in the virtue of Great Compassion of the Lord Buddha, this is extremely vast, boundless, and incomparable. Wise people have given a simile that if we praise the great virtues of the Lord Buddha, it's like a little bird that chirps into the infinite universe. This is because the virtue of great compassion of the Lord Buddha is incomparable.
    'So let's talk about compassion, in terms of the compassion that we cultivate as a meditation, or the compassion of the 4 Brahmaviharas, sublime abidings. When we want to practice or meditate by developing compassion, then this is the mind that thinks to help free others from suffering."
