The Buddha referred to the five hindrances (of sense desire, ill-will, tiredness and lethargy, restlessness and remorse, and doubt), as imperfections of the mind that weaken wisdom and nourish delusion. Through cultivating the mind using specific practices, we are able to restrain and eventually overcome the hindrances. As the hindrances are thus weakened, progressively deeper states of bliss and insight become available to us.
This evening programme will begin with half an hours’ guided meditation, followed by a Dhamma talk from Ajahn Brahmali. After the talk there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
