Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks
Ajahn Sucitto
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.

2020-07-19 Handling Difficult Feeling 48:26
The unawakened citta always reacts and tries to interpret what’s happening. Rather than interpret experience, notice the stress building up. Hover over the difficult feeling and equanimity, compassion, goodwill gradually comes in.

2020-07-19 Reclining Meditation 5:01
The reclining posture uses the entire length of the body to establish firmness. Open the front of the body to the space around, like a blanket of goodwill covering the body.

2020-07-18 Q&A 41:50
Working with feeling foggy in meditation; firmness and openness in walking meditation; relationship between emotions and bodily tension; working with doubt; releasing energy through hands, feet and head; cultivating generosity triggers constriction.

2020-07-18 Tending to Body Energy 5:04
Everything that affects us comes into our bodies, so a lot of stress can accumulate. Sympathize with what the body energy requires so it can come out of its pressurized jumbled state.

2020-07-18 The Open and Unrestricted Heart 41:09
Attention is generally driven by self-interest, to seek what is pleasant. The possibilities of what one receives are then restricted by the “self program”. Unrestricted means changing the baseline from that of the person to something impersonal that can yet be subjectively experienced – clarity, lovingkindness, letting go. Mindfulness of body acts as a platform for steady open awareness.

2020-07-18 Walking Meditation: Come Out of the Boundary of Me 8:40
Instructions for experiencing unrestricted awareness while walking: give attention to the flow of energy from firmness to openness. Notice the restrictions of visual and mental consciousness creeping in, and bring attention back to the rhythmic play of energy.

2020-07-18 Guided Meditation – Coming out of the Restricted State 33:57

2020-07-18 Unrestricted Awareness 37:48
We try to maintain order in a chaotic world, but our attempts tend to constrict and isolate. Clear the obscurations and restrictions by recognizing what is really causing stress and pressure – it’s not the external conditions but what the mind is making of them.

2020-07-12 Unravel the Web 42:29
Our habitual tendencies and conditioning weave a web of saṃsāra that we keep running around on. But we can generate new formulations and programs to steady and calm the mind, get it fit for the work of liberation. Mindfulness of body and breathing, and brahmavihāra cultivation are recommended practices.

2020-07-11 Open Road – Out of Pressure 38:50
Citta doesn’t start out liberated. It has to come through ignorance, craving and grasping. We can learn from this, what is the wrong path and what is the right path. The right path gets obscured by feeling and perception. Steady the energies and stay out of the activities of mind – the right path is there, it’s an open road.
