Description

In the second installment of our series on the Noble Eightfold Path, Ajahn Dhammasiha discusses 'Sammāsankappo' (Right Intention)


The three forms of wrong intention are:

  1. Sensual intentions/thoughts
  2. Intentions/thoughts of ill-will, anger & aversion
  3. Intentions/thoughts of harming & cruelty


The three good ones are:

  1. Intentions/thoughts of letting go/renunciation
  2. Non-ill-will (e.g. loving kindness, gratitude, respect, forgiveness, patience...)
  3. Non-cruelty (e.g. compassion, sympathy, equanimity...)


There are some interesting questions from the audience about the dangers of sensuality, and how to overcome sensual desire; and about sympathetic joy versus 'cutting down the tall poppies'.
