Mt Tuesday evening Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Ratana Sutta. In this sutta, the Buddha teaches the true meaning of taking refuge in the Buddha, his Dhamma, and a well-informed and well-focused sangha.

“There is no more precious jewel than the teachings of the Buddha, the Dhamma. Understanding this brings true liberation and freedom...”  (Ratana Sutta)

This is the seventeenth week of our Saturday 2019 Truth Of Happiness Dhamma Study. My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Ahara Sutta. The emphasis in this sutta, and the entire Buddha’s Dhamma, is to integrate the Eightfold Path as the singular path for recognizing and abandoning these Five Hindrances and developing the Seven Factors necessary to awaken.

“And what denies sustenance for the arising and increase of uncertainty? Remaining mindful of the mental qualities that are skillful and unskillful, blameless and blameworthy, refined or gross, inclined towards understanding (Four Noble Truths) and inclined towards further ignorance…”  (Ahara Sutta)

In the Dhammatthavagga the Buddha teaches the importance of developing the Heartwood of the Dhamma - the Eightfold Path - if one is to safely judge one's own Dhamma practice and judge and teach others.

“Judging mindlessly does not define a judge. The wise one knows both right judgment and wrong.”(Dhammapada 19)

This is the thirteenth week of our Tuesday 2019 Truth Of Happiness Dhamma Study. My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Anuradha Sutta.

The Anuradha Sutta is another sutta where the Buddha is asked questions whose basis is rooted in views ignorant of Four Noble Truths. Views established in ignorance can only continue ignorance and continue as a source of conjecture, disappointment, and ongoing deluded thinking.

“And is it authentic to my Dhamma to join with what is stressful, to self-identify with what is stressful by regarding what is impermanent, stressful, subject to change as: ‘This is mine. This is myself. This is what I am’?”  (Anuradha Sutta)

This is the fourteenth week of our Saturday 2019 Truth Of Happiness Dhamma Study.  My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on Dependent Origination and the  Paticca Samuppada Vibhanga Sutta.

Everything the Buddha taught was taught in the context of Dependent Origination and the ongoing stress, suffering and distraction that results from ignorance of Four Noble Truths.

“Friends, I will describe in detail Dependent Origination. Listen carefully. And what is Dependent Origination?”  (Paticca Samuppada Vibhanga Sutta)
