Public Dharma Talk by Ajahn Sumedho: Stillness Flowing


2018 marks the 100th birthday of Ajahn Chah. His teachings were so practical that they were independent of words, explanations and interpretations. Life of forest monks at Wat Pah Pong was based on awareness and mindfulness, of knowing the mind, of being aware of what you are actually feeling. To do this, you are not dependent on a particular language.

This simple teaching was about observing the state of mind, the ārammaṇa, the emotional reality that was present; to be aware of it; to see it in terms of the three characteristics: anicca, dukkha, anattā. Anyone could practise dharma in this way, even if during that initial period when one could not, as yet, understand the verbal teachings.

Luang Por whole attitude towards life was one that motivated others to want to train and live as a bhikkhu. He was a living example of the result of Buddhist meditation in the Thai Forest Tradition.
