A very fascinating talk “A Mind Like Fungi” by Ajahn Amaro takes you into Buddhist perspective. It talks about the mind and body, the within and without.
Ajahn teaches Buddhist wisdom about different personas, roles, and characters. The so-called “Inner Committee” we listen to every day.
Ajahn shares about his life. His first contact with meditation in the Buddhist practice, and how that eventually lead him to monastic life.
Ajahn explains each of us has a force to contribute to the environment. To do good and let go of the bad ways. And eventually, create harmony in the world.
A monastic life with renunciation of many things may not be perceived as a happy life. But Ajahn teaches that happiness does need to be simple.
This audible is a recording of the questions and answers about the topic of death. Ajahn gives answers in the Dharma practice.
Ajahn explains Buddhist teaching how to live in the present, in the now. That the past is a closed book, and the future is a complete mystery.
