Description

Ven Ajahn Khemasiri has been the abbot of Dhammapala monastery in Kandersteg, Switzerland, for many years.

  • https://dhammapala.ch/home-eng/


After his retirement last year, he had the opportunity to again live the homeless life of a 'samaṇa', and has been travelling to meet spiritual friends ('Kalyāṇa-mitta'), spend time in different monasteries of our tradition, and to share the Dhamma. He has spent the winter retreat in Amaravati Monastery near London, and is currently experiencing the British lockdown in that location.


Ajahn quotes the 'Sedaka-Sutta', Saṃyutta Nikāya 47.19 (Connected Discourses of the Buddha p. 2648) as a guideline to skillful respond to the pandemic: Protecting ourselves (through developing satipaṭṭhāna) we protect others; protecting others (through developing patience, kindness & compassion), we protect ourselves.


He talks about countering the 'Coronavirus' with the Karūṇavirus 😉


He encourages us be fully aware even of unpleasant, challenging emotions, and explains the benefits.


He talks about equanimity and how to distinguish it from indifference.
