Don't look down on the Defilements - sayadaw U Tejaniya

Postby cooran » Sun Apr 14, 2013 6:58 am

Hello all,

A short, to the point, booklet on the Defilements :-
"Don't look down on the Defilements - they will laugh at you" by Sayadaw U Tejaniya

http://sayadawutejaniya.org/wp-content/ ... pp1-39.pdf

Good booklet, I really like his relaxed style.
I am also enjoying his other book, Awareness Alone is Not Enough.
Available free here;
http://sayadawutejaniya.org/teachings/

I'm slowly working through it one delicious question at a time.
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

New Zealand members may be interested that Sayadaw will be leading a retreat near Auckland in November:
http://www.temoata.org/Retreats_Printable.html

This short talk by Steve Armstrong:
Dhamma Lessons - Complementary Practice Traditions
http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/170/talk/18905/
discusses how Sayadaw U Tejaniya's approach differed from what he'd been practising and teaching.
[The start of the talk may not sound like the right talk. Give it time...]

Would have been keen, but $850 + $200 registration is a little out of my price range, out of mostly everyone's price range I suspect.

Hello blackbird,

Not sure where you got this totally incorrect information. Could you post a link please?

Hello Blackbird,

So this is for a different retreat - one in New Zealand?
Thought you were talking about the Australian one in Perth.

For a working person even $800 is possible to save over the coming months, I would've thought. But if not, generally the organisers are flexible in special circumstances, I found.

Still it is interesting that the Australian retreat is less than half the price of the NZ. Maybe for the Australian one, they are getting the venue for free and in NZ they have to pay for the hire?
