"Also interesting that pondering and thinking about wholesome things can disturb the mind and hinder concentration."

hello--did you mean to say "thinking about wholesome things" or thinking about unwholesome things "can disturb the mind and hinder concentration?".

mod--I am interested in asking a question about how to approach this sutta and suttas in general--should I ask here, or should I post over in Theravadin questions? Also is there any problem if I refer to another translation such as Bhikkhu Nanamoli and Bhikkhu Bodhi's--_A Translation of the Majjhima Nikāya? Thanks for your help, Sher

Thanks for posting the link to the Ahara Sutta SN 46.51, and at the bottom of that sutta I noted a link to Avarana Sutta AN 5.51--I was able to read both of these today, and as you noted they are complementary to MN 19 Dvedhhāvitakka that we are looking at this week. A helpful connection. Sher

Hello:
I sometimes listen to the Sutta Study podcasts from BSWA (Ajahn Brahm) --The sutta we are reading and studying this week has a podcast , and some of you may find listening helpful. I sure did. Here is the link for the podcasts and scroll down to Sutta Study , once you click on the link, you will see a list of all the suttas available.
