My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion on Tuesday, December 24, 2019 is from two suttas featuring Rahula, the Buddha’s son, who was born just before Siddhartha he left his home seeking understanding. Now seven years later, the Buddha teaches his seven-year-old son a profound lesson in mindfulness. The second sutta has Rahula describing the results of his own awakening some years later.

“Rahula, all those who purify their minds through continual reflection (mindfulness) will do so in just this way. Rahula you should train yourself in just this way through continual mindfulness of your thoughts, words, and deeds…”  (Rahulavada Sutta)

Our Dhamma class for Tuesday, December 17, 2019 is class 31 of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks and articles are linked below.

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Adittapariyaya Sutta.  The Buddha presented his first two discourses to the ascetics he had previously befriended. About one month after the Buddha's first two discourses, he presented The Fire Discourse to approximately 1,000 followers. Upon hearing this short discourse, most of those in attendance awakened.

"Seeing thus, the well-instructed disciple of the noble ones grows disenchanted with the eye, disenchanted with forms, disenchanted with consciousness at the eye, disenchanted with contact at the eye. And whatever there is that arises in dependence on contact at the eye, experienced as pleasure, pain or neither-pleasure-nor-pain: With that, too, they grow disenchanted.…”  (Adittapariyaya Sutta)

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Simsapa Sutta. Here the Buddha describes the pure and direct focus of his Dhamma. He knew the foolishness and cruelty of continuing ignorance of Four Noble Truths by teaching any “dharma” that would develop further confusion and deluded thinking.

“This is what I teach. I teach these things because they are related to my Dhamma and they support the principles of a life integrated with the Eightfold Path...  (Simsapa Sutta)

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Culavedalla Sutta. This sutta presents a complete teaching on the process of delusion that begins with self-identification and the actual experience of developing insight into the clear path to be developed to end clinging to objects, views, and ideas

“Visakha, the Buddha teaches that self-identification is established by clinging to form, by clinging to feeling, by clinging to perception, by clinging to fabrications, and by clinging to consciousness. These five clinging-aggregates are the self-identification taught by the Buddha…”  (Culavedalla Sutta)

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Khajjaniya Sutta. The Khajjaniya Sutta is a profound teaching on the confusion and suffering that follows from clinging to speculative views rooted in ignorance of Four Noble Truths. 

“Understanding, they become disenchanted with past and future feelings, perceptions, fabrications, and consciousness. They are now practicing the Dhamma to become disenchanted and dispassionate with present feelings, perceptions, fabrications, and consciousness. They are now practicing the Dhamma to develop cessation from clinging to present feelings, perceptions, fabrications, and consciousness..  (Khajjaniya Sutta)

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Sallatha and Bahiya Suttas. The Sallatha Sutta teaches the arising and passing away of self-inflicted suffering rooted in ignorance and I-Making. The Bahiya Sutta teaches the culmination of the Buddha’s Dhamma and the practical experience of the cessation of ignorance of Four Noble Truths.

“A well-instructed person who has developed the Heartwood Of The Dhamma understands the arising and passing away of all phenomena…” (Sallatha Sutta)

“This is how you should train yourself. When for you there is in what is seen only the seen, in what is heard only the heard, in what is sensed only the sensed and in what is cognized only the cognized, then Bahiya there is no you in connection with what is seen, heard, sensed or cognized, there is no you there. When there is no you there, you are neither here nor there nor anywhere in-between. This and only this is the end of stress and unhappiness…” (Bahiya Sutta)

Our Dhamma class for Saturday, November 30, 2019 is class 26 of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks are linked below.

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Girimananda Sutta. The Girimananda Sutta is a profound and complete teaching on Three Marks Of Existence. With an initial focus on impermanence, the Buddha then relates underlying conditions that arise from self-identification with ordinary and impermanent phenomena and the stress, distractions, and ongoing disappointment that follows from misunderstanding these Three Marks.

Ananda, if you would go to Girimananda and tell him of the Ten Understandings it is possible that upon hearing your words his distress will be relieved.  (Girimananda Sutta)

Each Saturday class will have a thirty-minute Jhana meditation followed by my Dhamma talk and Sangha discussion and conclude with an offering of Metta.

This is a recording of our Tuesday evening Dhamma class from Cross River Meditation Center in Frenchtown, New Jersey on November 26, 2019. The live-stream begins every Tuesday at 7:15 PM Eastern US time.

Our 2019  Sangha Dinner will be December 12, 7 Pm at Bamboo House in Frenchtown. Additional information is below.

This Tuesday’s class is class 25 of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks are linked below.

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Sambodhi Sutta. The Sambodhi Sutta teaches the very specific “vipassana” or insight that the Buddha teaches. It is insight into Three Marks Of Existence. These three “marks” or common human characteristics define a person’s life when their minds are rooted in ignorance of Four Noble Truths.

For when one understands impermanence, clinging to anatta, to not-self, is abandoned. Understanding not-self uproots conceit. Unbinding arises in this moment .…” (Sambodhi Sutta)

Each Tuesday class will have a twenty-minute Jhana meditation followed by my Dhamma talk and Sangha discussion and conclude with an offering of Metta.

This is a recording of our Tuesday evening Dhamma class from Cross River Meditation Center in Frenchtown, New Jersey on November 19, 2019. The live-stream begins every Tuesday at 7:15 PM Eastern US time.

This Tuesday’s class is class 23of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks are linked below.

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Sariputta Sutta. In the Sariputta Sutta, Sariputta is questioned by Ananda, the Buddha’s cousin, and attendant. Ananda is confused about a fundamental aspect of the Dhamma.

I was sensitive of the arising and passing away of all phenomena. Just as a wood fire’s flames arise and pass away, I was sensitive of unbinding from wrong views..…” (Sariputta Sutta)

Each Tuesday class will have a twenty-minute Jhana meditation followed by my Dhamma talk and Sangha discussion and conclude with an offering of Metta.

This is a recording of our Saturday morning Dhamma class from Cross River Meditation Center in Frenchtown, New Jersey on November 16,  2019. The live-stream begins every Saturday at 8:30 AM Eastern US time.

This Saturday’s class is class 22 of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks are linked below.

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. Clinging to views established in ignorance can only continue ignorance and continue as a source of foolish speculation, conjecture, disappointment, and ongoing deluded thinking. 

“Anuradha, You have learned well. Remember what I teach: At all times it is only stress that I describe, and the cessation of stress.…”  (Anuradha Sutta)

Each Saturday class will have a thirty-minute Jhana meditation followed by my Dhamma talk and Sangha discussion and conclude with an offering of Metta.

This is a recording of our Tuesday evening Dhamma class from Cross River Meditation Center in Frenchtown, New Jersey on November 12, 2019. The live-stream begins every Tuesday at 7:15 PM Eastern US time.

This Tuesday’s class is class 21of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks are linked below.

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Atthakanagara Sutta. In the Aṭṭhakanāgara Sutta, the householder Dasama inquires of Ananda if there is a single quality taught by the Buddha that would result in release from all views ignorant of Four Noble Truths.

They disregard these phenomena and incline their mind to the cessation of ignorance – nothing remains to provoke the becoming of further ignorance and the birth of continued suffering.…” (Atthakanagara Sutta)

Each Tuesday class will have a twenty-minute Jhana meditation followed by my Dhamma talk and Sangha discussion and conclude with an offering of Metta.

This is a recording of our Saturday morning Dhamma class from Cross River Meditation Center in Frenchtown, New Jersey on November 9,  2019. The live-stream begins every Saturday at 8:30 AM Eastern US time.

This Saturday’s class is class 20 of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks are linked below.

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Anupada Sutta. As concentration increases during Jhana meditation refined mindfulness is established supporting the integration of the Eightfold Path developing a profound understanding of Three Marks Of existence. 

Having abandoned the perception of the dimensions of infinite space, dimensions of nothingness, infinite consciousness, and neither perception nor non-perception, Sariputta understood ‘There is deeper concentration.’ He pursued this path and realized deeper concentration.…”  (Anupada Sutta)

Each Saturday class will have a thirty-minute Jhana meditation followed by my Dhamma talk and Sangha discussion and conclude with an offering of Metta.

This is a recording of our Tuesday evening Dhamma class from Cross River Meditation Center in Frenchtown, New Jersey on November 5, 2019. The live-stream begins every Tuesday at 7:15 PM Eastern US time.

This Tuesday’s class is class 19of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks are linked below.

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Rahogata Sutta. In the Rahogata Sutta, the Buddha teaches that feelings of pleasure, pain, or ambivalence, when perceived through a mind rooted in ignorance of Four Noble Truths will fabricate what is experienced in a way that reaffirms ignorance and continues stress. 

I have stated this in connection to fabrications. Fabrications are impermanent. It is the nature of fabrications to arise and pass away, to change. It is in connection to fabrications that I stated that whatever feeling arises, they are all stressful.…” (Rahogata Sutta)

Each Tuesday class will have a twenty-minute Jhana meditation followed by my Dhamma talk and Sangha discussion and conclude with an offering of Metta.

This Saturday’s class is class 18 of 32 classes of our structured study of vipassana - introspective insight into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha. Past talks are linked below.

My Dhamma talk and our sangha discussion is on the Vipallasa Sutta. This concise sutta speaks directly to the heart of the Dhamma and provides simple and direct guidance of the qualities of mind to recognize and abandon and the qualities of mind to develop and maintain.

“Friends, there are four fabrications of perceptions, of the mind, of views. These four fabrications are:

•Confusing permanence with regard to impermanence

•Confusing pleasant with regard to stressful

•Confusing self with regard to Not-Self

•Confusing attractive with regard to unattractive…”  (Vipallasa Sutta)
