Description

Asked what meditation technique he's teaching, Ajahn Chah once famously answered:

“I'm teaching torture” ('toroman' in Thai)

Of course, this is not meant literally, as someone with profound insight and great compassion like Luang Por Chah would never act motivated by cruelty. So what did he actually mean?

Ajahn Dhammasīha offers some reflections how we can interpret Ajahn Chah's “torture”, and how being “tortured” can lead us to develop wisdom, insight and letting go of all dukkha.
