I've been getting a lot out of Ajahn Brahsm youtube channels and writings. I'm thinking of trying one of his retreats out. I live on the east coast of the US, so that would be quite a big and expensive trip.
Has anyone here gone on one of Ajahn Brahms retreats? Opinions, observations?
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.
