Content / Description

Talk given to monks. Danger of comfort and routine: “our life of a monk is predictable, however the practice is not predictable”. Sati: breaking/splitting activities into small actions/body movements; “without sati, we cannot get free”. Dukkha: it drives you to think and do this and that; “the Dukkha must be so heavy, why can't you see it?” Body investigation: tear it apart until the citta understands this body is just a mess of flesh and bones. Symbols: “what does it mean to take a shower or wash cloth? How does it feel?” Kilesas: “you say: 'yes my Lord'”
