2014-08-14 Train for Nibbana 37:00
A commentary on the benefits of communal life - both monastic and lay - in keeping on the path to Nibbana. There is nothing else to do but practice with consideration and respect for ourselves and each other. Every moment in every life situation, we train the mind. We never give up inclining the mind towards the riches of the Path..

2014-08-10 Dhamma MRI – Mindful, Radical Investigation 33:59
How can we work through mental habits that are deeply rooted? With patience, courage, and penetrating discernment we scan the heart and identify our suffering. At last, waves of compassion, loving-kindness, joy, and calm arise to bless and heal us internally and in any difficult relationships with others. And, in so doing, we grow our Dhamma wings.

2014-07-19 Speaking of Violence 36:47
If we can deal with the craziness of the mind, we can help to decrease the craziness and violence of the world. But we have to be so patient and keep faith with the process of of cleaning up our own violence. Even when the mind is hot, there will be some good will that we can touch - if we lean towards that which is kind and gentle - harmless - this can lead us towards fearlessness and acceptance.

2014-06-07 The Bricks and Mortar of Forgiveness 11:29
A short reflection on forgiveness - what we can do when we just can't forgive. How do we deal with difficult past relationships when forgiveness seems impossible? Examining our expectations in relationship and our capacity to forgive when others have let us down - without judgment of anyone including ourselves - we start to open into compassion. Let's give ourselves and others a second chance.

2013-06-30 Sacred Heart: First Inside the Temple 32:40
First talk given inside the new Sati Saraniya Temple building. Within us we have a sacred space that we need to reclaim - the very space inside the heart. Here the Four Noble Truths come to life. Know our suffering, not blaming anyone or any conditions for it, see its origin within us, and right here, resolve it, uproot it. Here then, we realize suffering's end, time and again. And so in clearing the heart, we clear the Path.
