Dhamma Stream Online Puja: Nibbidā – Turning Away from Conditioned Consciousness
2020-06-21 Dhamma Stream Online Puja: Nibbidā – Turning Away from Conditioned Consciousness 45:28
Ajahn Sucitto
An untrained mind has no choice, it goes straight into dukkha; the trained mind has the possibility to turn away from patterns that the mind creates. The hinge-point is nibbidā – disinterest, disenchantment – to no longer be gripped by the play of the mind. Through this, mental patterns can be acknowledged as they arise but not entered into. Through remaining with dispassionate awareness, liberation can be realized. *Sutta references - AN10:2; SN35:28
