Friday Aug 7
We had a special Friday group: three of the nuns from Aloka Vihara Forest Monastery, Ayya Santacitta, Ayya Ahimsa and Ayya Niyyanika started their series of presentations on the Noble Eightfold Path. They will continue the second Friday of each month, ending in Jan 2021. Today they talked about the three major divisions of the Path: wisdom (pañña), morality (sila) and stillness/concentration (samadhi).
Tues Aug 25
We started with a guided meditation on the breath by Ayya Medhanandi. It was very special. Then Sanghamitta introduced some concepts on changing our habit energy, referring to a book recommended by Ajahn Sudanto called, Atomic Habits by James Clear. The teachings in the book are consonant with the teachings of the Buddha.
