    Why Secular Buddhism Is Baloney! | Ajahn Brahmali

    Why Secular Buddhism Is Baloney! | Ajahn Brahmali

    Ajahn Brahmali is the guest on this episode to talk about how and why Secular Buddhism misrepresents the original teachings of the Buddha. This discussion goes in to some depth about the importance of understanding the place of karma and rebirth in the Buddha's teachings, and how our views impact upon the way that we act, including upon our practice. There is also discussion about the role of mindfulness in Secular Buddhism, and how mindfulness is a good thing, but also, how we cannot practice Buddhism fully without other important factors of the Eightfold Path.

    Our Most Urgent Task - Ajahn Nissarano

    Our Most Urgent Task - Ajahn Nissarano

    Published with permission of Treasure Mountain Podcast. Please visit Treasure Mountain Podcast, Treasure Mountain website and Treasure Mountain facebook page.
    In this episode of Sage Advice we have as our guest, Ajahn Nissarano who is coming to us from Newbury Monastery, which is just north-west of Melbourne, Australia.
    Ajahn Nissarano was born in 1952 in Perth, Western Australia. In 1997, he was ordained by Ajahn Brahm as a novice monk and a year later took full ordination. This year will be his 25th Rains Retreat, Vassa. He lived in Sri Lanka from 2006 to 2019, for a total of 13 and half years. During that time, he lived for 8 years in a cave on the side of a mountain, surrounded by forest and going for alms round to the village below. He returned to Australia regularly to teach, primarily at the Buddhist Society of Victoria. In January 2021 he became the Senior Monk at Newbury Buddhist Monastery, outside Melbourne, which is run by the Buddhist Society of Victoria.
    Ajahn Nissarano joins us on this episode of Sage Advice to discuss the topic “our most urgent task”. We are so busy these days, we often lose sight of the big picture. And we can become so distracting that we don't even see what our most urgent task in life is. In this interview Ajahn Nissarano offers advice on what is most essential and urgent for us to focus on if we are to really develop the spiritual qualities.

Realness

The down to earth real nature of these talks is amazing. I am able to connect with the speakers and the message with every listen. Ajahn Brahm’s jokes are top notch.

The Winnie the Pooh of monks

I am so grateful for Ajahn Brahm and his dharma talks. I’ve learned so much and when I forget what I learned he’s there to gently remind me. Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu! - love from Phoenix Arizona!

More Ajahn Brahm

I appreciate all the talks from the monks and nuns, but Ajahn Brahm deliveries the best dharma talks. But he’s a busy monk so I take what I’m giving. And I’m thankful for every dharma talk.
