Awesome Bhikkhu Bodhi Videos

Hi virtual Sangha (I would say e-sangha but that might be confusing, but it's better because after all you're real people just online, at least some of you, and I don't think the rest of you are virtual simulations),
I just watched this series of video clips of Bhikkhu Bodhi giving a talk and I found it very explicit and interesting.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDy2G3obN04&NR=1
The only thing to look out for is that video 3 is actually video 4 and video 4 is actually video 3, so to see them in order watch 1, 2, 4, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.
Enjoy,
Zack

Thank you Altar. :thumbsup: I am looking forward to watching these tomorrow.

The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Thank you!

harm no one nor have them harmed.
