This morning’s instruction is an invitation to investigate the first two (of the twenty-four) conditions outlined in the Patthana, the last section of Abhidhamma.

  Sayadaw U Jagara
Both Sayadaw U Jagara and Nikki Mirghafori share answers and reflections on pre-written questions: What’s the nutriment for equanimity and doubt? What is the difference between a cause and a condition? Explain anatta — If there is not a self, whose kamma gets reborn? Etc.
2018-07-13 Object + Objective 39:32
  Sayadaw U Jagara
What are your objectives in life? What are the situations, internal and external, that you find yourself involved in, from moment to moment, and how you can do something about it, to some extent. Small objectives finally come to be seen as not separate from the big picture, our Objective.
