Having returned safely from an inspired period of intensive meditation practice in Bodhgaya I found that I had a burst of good energy and was able to edit a number of talks and meditations that I had been hoping to get around to for some time. We plan to upload these over the coming months.
On this occasion I am sharing a reading of one of Venerable Ajahn Chah's translated talks that gives an inspiring and deeply empathic overview of practice. This short talk is one of my favourites as every time read it I feel encouraged to keep putting forth effort. I am also sharing a talk that I gave while teaching a retreat which points to the qualities that we need to depend upon in order to develop insight, and which also enable us to abandon the unskilful qualities that oppress our minds.
I sincerely hope that this reading and talk may be helpful to you at this time.
Ajahn Achalo Bhikkhu
