Ajahn Vayama starts by sharing a Jataka Tale about wisdom gone wrong, which explains how we can easily misunderstand the teachings when we don’t get the full story and this can cause things to go wrong. Ajahn discusses people’s misrepresentations, misperceptions and misunderstandings of the Buddhist teachings, as well as how to know whether our motivations and intentions are wholesome. Ajahn also talks about how in Buddhism we go with the flow of wisdom, truth, impermanence, unsatisfactoriness, non-self and changeability.
