Ajahn Brahm tells the story of the Four Old Men: wealth, success, peace and harmony. The story teaches us about getting our priorities right because Ajahn says a lot of problems in life come from when we focus on something which is not worth very much and sacrifice things which are worth far, far more. Ajahn explains how when we get our priorities wrong we suffer and we create suffering for others.

Teachings are available for downloading from the BSWA Youtube Channel, the BSWA Podcast, and Deeper Dhamma Podcast.
