The daily challenge

Here, Ajahn Sucitto, who gave a talk last evening in Geneva, sums up the whole of practice in an insightful way: Getting to know the mind, and the unskilful habits which lead to suffering:

We are all in this together

— wanting peace and harmony – but disappointing and irritating each other nonetheless.

‘It shouldn’t be this way, there shouldn’t be any suffering.’

But then isn’t understanding and letting go of suffering what it’s all about.

What else are we here for?

Ajahn Sucitto, Parami

  1. Yes, I so appreciate this post, Karl. I sit in the terminal at Newark airport waiting to depart for a family gathering. Flight has been delayed. I am mindful and I am not suffering. I am grateful there is a charging station by an available seat!
