TitleToo comfortable to practice - Investigation
Date18 Jun 2010
LocationWat Pa Baan Taad
Content / Description

Loosening up the tension in the body with the mind. Body: worrying about the body keeps us from getting results; Sila: morality is a must, not an option; Fighting the kilesas: amazing stillness when we have a victory over the kilesas. Life of monks is now too comfortable, not enough dukkha to practice; Food contemplation: investigate tastes (sweet, salty, sour etc.), likes and dislikes; Body contemplation: we over-identify with our body, understanding that the body and the citta are 2 different things is necessary to reach sotappana.
