Content / Description

The experience that stays in our mind. Looking for the experience again and forgetting the work: the single-pointedness of the mind. The changing nature of the present moment. Dukkha is a container for all the unpleasant things. The Citta can do only one task at a time. Staying with the meditation object. Not letting the Citta going to the senses. The knowing nature: where we take refuge. “Let go” is the function of the heart that understands. Wisdom arises in the heart. The Wisdom of the experience. The fire of the senses. The Five Khandas: the made up world. A magician called “Avijja”: not wanting to know in line with the truth. There are no Khandas in Nibbana. The Five Khandas do not belong to us. Citta: the driver and the car. Citta and the kamma. The investigation of the body is the main topic. The body is the nutriment of greed and hate. The Five Precepts are a must, our right to born as human beings. Generosity, respect and gratitude. Freedom.
