Greetings fellow practitioners,
I actually really enjoyed editing and revisiting this talk. Given around half way through a three week Pilgrimage to the Buddhist Holy Sites of India, this talk is a very 'rich' one, covering many interesting subjects and concepts. I think a combination of the power of the Holy Sites, my own love and appreciation of Lord Buddha and ever-deepening appreciation of his life and teachings, as well as the sincere faith, interest and commitment of the pilgrims, inspired a very interesting and compelling reflection. Being in the places where many teachings were given and doing many of the practices he had taught is no doubt a great way to bring it all to life!
The talk, interspersed with readings, touches on themes such as The Life of the Buddha… His central Teachings… The manner of practicing those teachings… The results of Practicing the teachings… What Enlightenment actually is… What is uprooted from a mind in the process of Enlightenment… and what might remain after Enlightenment.
All rather interesting material for aspirants both finding and cultivating the 'Way.'
I hope that this talk may prove to be educational, interesting and useful.
Ajahn Achalo Bhikkhu
