Ajahn Sucitto This book explores a range of ways in which the principle of kamma - of cause and effect - can be seen as underlying the Buddha's teaching in all aspects of life. Often seen as a teaching on morality, kamma has its most transformative fruition in meditation.
Ajahn Sucitto Parami – ‘perfections,’ or transcendent virtues – are daily life practices that give the mind a firm ground in Dhamma. Comprising simple qualities like patience, generosity and truthfulness, they can be skilfully applied to the ‘flash-points’ in the day in order to steer the mind out of samsaric currents and on towards peace, clarity and nibbāna.
Ajahn Sucitto & Nick Scott A Pilgrimage on Foot to the Buddhist Holy Places - Part One.
Rude Awakenings records a journey by Ajahn Sucitto of Cittiviveka
Monastery in West Sussex, UK and Nick Scott. They spent six months together
retracing the Buddha's footsteps in India, along with many detours and
sidetracks both physical and psychological. The alternating versions of
what each of them perceived of their outside world presents a vision of
each human being's pilgrimage through life.
Ajahn Sucitto & Nick Scott This book is the sequel to Rude Awakenings. It records the seven hundred mile journey on foot, of Ajahn Sucitto and Nick Scott as they spent six months together in the Middle Land of the Buddha, as well as a long loop into Nepal and the Himalayas. The arduous nature of the pilgrimage, both physically and psychologically, 'gives the reader a taste of Dhamma off the cushion and on the road'.
Ajahn Sucitto This booklet offers some means to find clarity and calm within a few minutes. They can be put into practice in a range of non-specialized situations – in the time it would take you to drink a cup of tea. If you live a busy life, this guide may help you come out of the momentum of the day and give you more time. These suggestions may also offer you a way to meditate – but that’s up to you and another guide.
Ajahn Sucitto This book is a guide to meditation in the tradition of Theravada Buddhism. In order to achieve breadth while remaining manageably concise, it is an outline, rather than a detailed exposition. Nevertheless this book follows the themes in the Buddha’s discourse on mindfulness (Satipatthanasutta).
Ajahn Sucitto Buddhist teachings like the eightfold path, the four noble truths, and karma pervade Buddhist literature—but how often do we read what the Buddha himself had to say about these topics? Here is an accessible look at the Buddha’s First Discourse, which contains the foundation for all further Buddhist teaching.
Ajahn Sucitto offers a new translation of this revolutionary teaching, known as The Discourse That Sets Turning the Wheel of Truth. He then walks us through the text, offering engaging and practical point-by-point commentary that makes the Buddha’s words come alive and reveals how the text’s wisdom can inspire our own liberation.
Ajahn Sucitto Theravada monks of the forrest tradition, such as those in the monasteries of Cittaviveka and Amaravati in the South East of England, (where the author has been based since 1979), remove themselves from all attachments, including attachment to location. They spend much of their time isolated in a forrest and, outside of the traditional Asian ‘rainy season’, wander from place to place in search of inspiration and enlightenment, always living in the present moment.
Of what do these devotees think between bouts of meditation? What is ‘living in the present moment’ anyway? This collection of poems by Ajahn (teacher) Sucitto, latterly Abbot of a Buddhist Monastery, may give some insights.
