Monday night meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram, Cambodian Society of WA (CBSWA) with Ajahn Jhanarato on 9th March 2020.
Ajahn Jhanarato talks to us tonight about our ability to meditate when the environment around us is noisy or less than ideal. Ajahn refers back to occasions in his own experience where noise was very much present. Ajahn equates this to our minds after a busy normal day. Our minds tend to be like a market place or even a snow globe. All we need do is sit and allow our minds to settle. Using this settling time to also adjust and relax our bodies, gives rise to our mind clearing, settling, leading to a much better more relaxed meditation.
Ajahn then lead the group in a thirty minute meditation encouraging us all to leave the busy day behind and just allow our mind to settle, becoming peacefully relaxed.
After meditation Ajahn opened to questions before continuing his talk.
Teachings are available for downloading from the CBSWA website.
