Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks

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.
2016-04-25 AM Puja: Puja - Celebration of What Is Given 31:59
The textures of puja offer the opportunity to gladden and brighten the heart so that lovingness and empathy come forth.

2016-04-24 Evening Dhamma Talk: Releasing the Qualities of the Boundless Heart through Embodiment 56:54
The great heart's natural response to pain and suffering is compassion and equanimity, released by directly handling experience through embodiment. Without the natural ground of embodiment there is a tendency towards differentiation and forming abstractions about self and other that create separation.

2016-04-24 Remarks on Walking Meditation 13:10
Without pushing forward, without having a goal, experience the motion and flow of walking. Allow citta to pick up the embodied signal in movement – and come home.

2016-04-24 AM Dhamma Talk: Resonance between Citta and Body 33:38
In the embodied state body and mind are not separate. The somatic sense, or internal sense, is a mirror of what's happening to citta. This sense is more accurate than thoughts – which tend towards an abstraction that diverts awareness from unpleasant feeling.

2016-04-24 AM Puja: Puja Makes Way for the Unspoken 13:43
The instinctive tuning in and atmospherics of puja help the person to stand behind what's going on and tune in to the timeless conversation of the sacred.

2016-04-23 Opening Remarks: The Texture of the Precepts Includes Respect, Sensitivity and Care 1:16:41
The group format of the retreat requires care because we can't help but enter each other's presence. Precepts offer boundaries that catalyze quality of heart and sensitivity to how we negatively impact ourselves and others.

2016-04-21 Daily Life Jhana 38:21
People often have the idea that one practices “concentration” to achieve “special meditative states of mind” called jhana, but Ajahn Sucitto points out that in fact jhana is a daily life practice of absorbing into the wholesomeness of nature that leads to the embodiment of samadhi – a unified state of the heart. This talk was offered on April 21, 2016 at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery.
