Ayya Medhanandi: Ever Present Refuge: The Nimitta of Suffering, Jan 3 2021 051

Ayya Medhanandi, Monastic Teachings, teachings

Ayya Medhanandi begins by asking those assembled what is the most pressing issue now. She leads us to seeing the wisdom of being present in the moment as a refuge from the worldly winds and suffering. While she recognized that there has been great suffering this past year, she pointed out that suffering, in fact, allows us to learn the Dhamma. Our true home is the place within us unperturbed by the conditioned.
