Ajahn Achalo Bhikkhu
1 - What contributes to forming of personality? Should latent personality or old habits be changed as we further our practice? Should we intentionally change ourselves to be more "mature" and "grown up"?
2 - Usually after meditation the mental energy is so bright and awake and so powerful that could not fall asleep at night, can you advise how to balance it out, what is the best way to deal with it.
3 - Is Ajahn planning any online retreat?
4 - For a patient with dementia, how is his/her state of mind in terms of mindfulness when he/she departs from this world?
5 - In this covid pandemic, could it be possible for a person to die "accidentally" meaning that it’s not due to his karma but because of circumstances such as unknowingly contracting covid from a friend, or no hospital bed available, or lack of oxygen masks or ICU facilities when he was ill. So due to such circumstances he died even though its not his time yet?
6 - Could you please explain mental formations. If my understanding is correct, feelings and perceptions are part of mental formations. But feelings, perceptions, and mental formations are separate aggregates, so how does this actually work?
