Ajahn Santutthi related a simile by the Buddha about mangoes. Rather than picking the fruit, the Buddha patiently waited for the fruit to fall. Ajahn encourages us all to do the same regards our meditation practise, be patient and wait for the deeper states to occur naturally.
Ajahn then guided us in a thirty minute meditation well suited to all. Ajahn then related Buddha’s earlier practise of meditation when he was trying many different techniques in his effort to find the best meditation.
