    Ajahn Jhanarato | Metta Practice | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

    Ajahn Jhanarato | Metta Practice | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

    February 2020
    Ajahn Jhanarato commenced the evening by reciting one of the Buddha's early sutta regarding Metta “Suttacentral”. Ajahn did this to encourage us to commence our meditation from the present moment and with Metta in-mind. By doing this we leave the past where it belongs, in the past and the future does take our attention away from the present moment.
    Ajahn doesn't use mantras in his meditation, but rather just focuses on present moment awareness. Though he does acknowledge that for many of us, the use of a mantra is helpful. Ajahn then lead the group in a thirty minute meditation well suited to beginners and experienced a like.
    After meditation Ajahn opened to Q&A before reciting another of Buddha's early sutta's “Suttacentral” in response to a question.

    Ownership and Anger| Ajahn Brahmavamso | 14 February 2020

    Ajahn Brahm teaches how to live our life without anger. Ajahn explains that when we own something, we want to control it, and when things don't go the way we want, we get angry or disappointed. So we should remind ourselves that things are impermanent and try not so hard to control it.

10/10 Enjoy

I’ve been listening to Ajahn Brahm for years. This man’s teachings are worth the listen.

Relax, Open, Explore

I've been meditating for right at 2 years, WOW, self actualization on steroids.

I've been watching Ajahn Brahm on YouTube with additional fantastic content on this Podcast.

The combined media provides guidance, instruction and entertainment. Used regularly it has expanded my practice, opened my mind and helps to validate the claims of Buddhism.

This content on this Podcast has proved very valuable since finding it 2 weeks ago. It allows me to listen on the go throughout the day which facilitates a mindful state.

Instruction in meditation is important if you wish to understand the why, how and consequences of opening your mind. The appropriate use of media can serve as a valuable tool as your journey progresses.

I believe it’s important to have input, instruction and guidance from a multitude of instructors. Within this Podcast you’ll find Dharma talks and guided meditation from several different Monks and guest speakers. I feel fortunate that this Podcast exists and want to thank all involved for what I’m certain is not an easy undertaking.

A multitude of varied content, well laid out, intuitive interface and a dose of daily wisdom to help anchor your thoughts for the day ahead.

I’m pleased with myself that I found this Podcast I’m very, very pleased that it exists and that I have another tool to assist on my journey to Nirvana.

If you meditate give it a try, don’t miss out on adding another tool to your toolbox.

“Being deeply learned and skilled, being well-trained and using well spoken words, this is good luck.
Buddha

My thanks to everyone involved in its making, distribution and dedication to helping others.

Hmmmm

My first podcast review ever. The BSWA as a whole has been such a gift, such a blessing to me over the past few years. I have become a better version of myself. My compassion and efforts of kindness and gratitude has grown. The talks have both allowed me to accept the present, and yet work for the future I desire. Loosely quoted from a talk, ‘when there is something to do, do it, when there is nothing you can do, stop...have patience until you can do something...’ Gold for the layman, I mean laywoman :) What else could I ask for?!
