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.

2021-05-01 Natural Discipline 37:40
Worldly systems and structures keep us filled with activity, leaving us depleted and restless. What’s missing is pausing and discharging that any natural system includes. We can use the natural bodily system to reset body and mind and come into presence. This is where rest and replenishment are found.

2021-05-01 Introduction – Establishing Wise Deep Attention 19:14
The floods of sense consciousness and delusion take us away from a place where we might feel stable, assured, comfortable. We experience a loss of autonomy and receptivity. We can use the quality of wise deep attention (yoniso manasikāra) to turn attention to the source of our actions and our being. The roots are found in the domain of body and mind.

2021-05-01 Guided Meditation – Dhammavicaya 14:42
Dhammavicaya gives us a way to acknowledge and explore phenomena without getting caught up in them. The act of acknowledging provides a place of stability and clarity, so you can relate to experience rather than be in it. Energy then shifts from the phenomena and reactivity to acknowledgement, truthfulness and relationship. This is where suffering can be allayed.

2021-04-26 The True Good Person (Sappurisa) 56:22
The good person is considered to be the bedrock, the first condition that should be established, for someone seeking after liberation. We are both formed by associating with good people, and we can become good people. In meditation we purify the bodily base so it can act as the reference point for our intentions and behaviors. A sense of meaningful purpose and alignment to true duty then inform the ‘true person’.

2021-04-24 Guided Meditation - Attentive Disengagement 18:10
In meditation we’re making a shift from being engaged to being attentive but disengaged. Disengagement has a cool, easeful quality to it, giving us leverage against the strong emotional pressures of the mind. From this place we can make peace with the mind that is never at ease.
