Ajahn Brahmavamso (386)

Intellectual Materialism

Responding to a debate between Sam Harris and Deepak Chopra which appeared to be lacking in science and philosophy and resembled more the arguments had every day between ordinary people. Ajahn Brahm criticises intellectual materialism for lacking heart nor a sense of humour. The purpose of both religion and science should not be defending doctrines and books, but developing a deeper understanding of life and respect for one another. As Ajahn Brahm states,"We mistake the ideas for the truth. We mistake the theories for the underlying emotional freedom which those theories are supposed to be pointing. The sign posts are not the destination."

"You can destroy the Buddha statues, but don't destroy what they stand for: peace, love, kindness, forgiveness."

The Pure Land

People often want to take the easy way. This includes in Buddhism where there are no shortage of "short cuts to Enlightenment". However, as Ajahn Brahm explains, there are no effective short cuts, only the Eightfold Path. And whilst we may not always get what we want, we usually get what we need.

Wisdom Borne of Silence

Where does wisdom come from? Not from universities - they teach old knowledge. Wisdom comes from a deep, all-round knowing in the present moment - it is empowered by a mind stabilized by the deep silence and peace of meditation. Ajahn Brahm how silence is the source of deepest wisdom.

Buddhist Position on Serious Issues

Ajahn Brahm discusses a Buddhist perspective and response on the serious issues that face the world today like climate change and terrorism. Ajahn Brahm starts by pointing out that there is no single, unified Buddhist position on all these issues because there is no central person in charge to declare a uniform position, but rather, Buddhism is a practice that helps us to understand the world and respond to its challenges.

Is everything interconnected?

It's become an axiom in amongst Western Buddhists that everything is interconnected. Ajahn Brahm challenges this axiom by pointing out that sometimes things are interconnected and sometimes they aren't. But furthermore, sometimes it's really important to disconnect and let go of all the problems of the world and be at peace.

Guilt

Are you one of the many people who feel bad and guilty for all your mistakes (even the tiny ones)? You'll be pleased to know that Buddhism doesn't do guilt. And in fact the levels of guilt in society are a rather disfunctional aspect of our minds. Ajahn Brahm offers a fresh perspective to let go of the burden of guilt.
