The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks at Meditationszentrum Beatenberg
Ajahn Sucitto
As a monk, I bring a strong commitment, along with the renunciate flavor, to the classic Buddhist teachings. I play with ideas, with humor and a current way of expressing the teachings, but I don't dilute them.

2017-06-17 Early Morning Reflections: Don’t Go into Automatic – What’s Beautiful Now? 12:27
An automatic quality can take over as we practice. It happens when we retain the past: I am this, I had this experience, I want to have another experience… Instead we can arise and awaken into this body even when it’s not so comfortable and bright. Receive everything as a gift, as something new. Access what’s beautiful now.
