Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks at Bodhi College
Ajahn Sucitto
As a monk, I bring a strong commitment, along with the renunciate flavor, to the classic Buddhist teachings. I play with ideas, with humor and a current way of expressing the teachings, but I don't dilute them.

2020-12-07 Guided Meditation – Intentional Aspect of Citta 29:13
Beginning with citta’s ability to intend and attend, steer away from distractions and compulsions. Establish mindfulness (sati ) using body as a mooring post. Guidance around breathing and body follow.
Citta: Mind, Heart, Spirit
2020-12-07 Guided Meditation – Centring and Stabillizing Citta 39:11
Citta is our center, but it’s conditioned to allowing itself to be occupied with transient phenomena. In meditation we can shift back to citta as the center, thereby weakening the habits of running out and trying to control circumstances.
Citta: Mind, Heart, Spirit
2020-12-06 Guided Meditation – Training the Mind with Light Touch and Listening 25:36
Citta is energetic, its energies habituated to going out. Settle and calm it through the body, and sustain attention with light touch and listening, vitaka-vicara. Listen for a long time to what you place your attention on. Mind becomes calm and receptive.
Citta: Mind, Heart, Spirit
2020-12-06 Overview of Citta 50:18
Referring to various Dhammapada passages, we come to understand that citta is stuck, grasped, bound up. But it can be released with wisdom. In meditation we practice calming and steadying. Citta can bond to body or breathing rather than running out.
Citta: Mind, Heart, Spirit
