Raise Your Mind to Connect with Visiting Senior Ajahns | Ajahn Dhammasiha | Dhammagiri
Ajahn Dhammasiha encourages us to uplift our mind to a higher level, to better connect with Luang Por Liem during his visit in three weeks time. The purer our heart, the better we will be able to tune into profound teachings and comprehend them.
In Australia and many countries mobile networks are being upgraded to 5G. However, if our phone only has 4G capabilities, we won't be able to receive the super high speed of 5G. A 4G phone will only ever receive in 4G, it can't tune into the new 5G signal.
Similarly, if we wish to receive the full benefits of the teachings and presence of a visiting meditation master, we have to 'upgrade' our mind to a higher level.
How do we do that?
- Generating good karma ('puñña'), to brighten our mind and suffuse is with wholesome joy and happiness
- Observing the 5 precepts meticulously, to experience freedom from remorse ('avippaṭisāra'), clear conscience, and blameless happiness ('anavajja-sukha')
- Developing Samādhī ('unification of mind' / 'concentration') to free our mind from the five hindrances and increase the level of mindfulness ('sati') and awareness ('sampajaññā')
- Cutivating Right View ('Sammā-Diṭṭhi'), conviction in the efficacy of karma, confidence that there are beings that have freed their hearts from all defilements and fetters, and that total release, Nibbāna, can be experienced by ourselves if we follow the 8 fold noble path as expounded by the Buddha
