The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
 
Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks at Vallecitos Mountain Retreat Center
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.

2016-05-08 Citta and a person meet in the body. 61:52
Citta is occluded by not knowing its freedom. Citta enters the sensory condition, is ‘born’, develops a person to meet ‘the other’. Here is dukkha and personal responses to that don’t work, but dukkha can be released through citta in the body.

Balance is an important aspect of bodily/somatic intelligence. It is alert, free from pressure and sensitive. Attuning to this can bring these qualities into citta.

2016-05-08 Puja: Devotion as a way of bringing citta into personhood 41:43
Use of one’s voice and of giving it to the sacred. Through merging one’s voice and giving into the communal field, citta can rise out of the isolation of personhood.

2016-05-07 Meditation – the gift of natural ease 47:35
Find ground in the body as a gift, not worked for. This opens space around the body. Breathing is another given that flows through that, establishing rhythm = natural time.

2016-05-07 The Nature of Citta 59:45
Citta is awareness, heart and mind. It experiences involuntary and voluntary modes. In the involuntary is release, but the path to that is through intention, disengagement, and discernment.
