Convention and Liberation: A Dhamma talk by Ajahn Chah

Postby bodom » Thu Jan 29, 2009 3:08 pm

I read this talk yesterday and spent the day reflecting on it. Venerable Ajahn Chah shows us how to live in this modern world while being above it. Highly recommended short read. Enjoy!

Thank-you
I always love reading Ajahn Chahs talks I wish I could of listened to him directly at times as I would like a dialogue with him
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
