Content / Description

Talk given to monks. Dhutanga: they bring greed & anger, make the kilesas appear more clearly, only use them when ready. “The kilesas want to make us break, to leave the monkshood”; Calm: sticking the citta to the breath or the buddho makes us completely calm; Sati: if not enough sati, you can use the noting method. “Don't look down on other people, we are as bad as them”; Greed/anger: learn to deal with them, see them as anatta, then investigate the feeling, why do we do this to ourselves? Kilesas: if you give them a little finger, they take the whole hand! Moment to moment: do it step by step like running a marathon, don't look at the time or the future.
