Ajahn Jayasaro (in English):
How to overcome bad habits such as laziness: making a firm resolution to change, writing it down longhand, telling other people about it, have measurable goals to achieve in a certain period of time.
How to respond to people who treat you badly when you have only treated them with kindness: some people might be jealous or pretend something. Good people who are determined to stick to their principles and maintain honesty and self-respect in their dealings with others will often meet with anger and ill-will. But we cannot expect to be rewarded for being good. Thai culture is not a revenge culture like Chinese or Western society regarding punishment. Fear of punishment is not a good deterrent from crime. Question of ethics in times of chaos or war. People without spiritual training are very unreliable because of mental defilements.
Why do Pali chanting without translations? It should not become an empty ritual.
Should we believe in supernatural phenomena? There is a lot of projection onto famous monks and some people expect them to tell lottery numbers. Story about Ajahn Chah reading the mind of a Western monk and also reading people's behaviour.
Finding the right balance between different goals: spiritual, work, family, etc. Not becoming lost in fame and career. What's so great about being famous for 5 minutes? A 'celebrity' is famous for being famous. Having money is just a support for our life, not a measure of who you are.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CC6VCo6_uEw
