Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks at Insight Meditation Society - Forest Refuge
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.

2019-05-02 Using Body to Train the Mind 20:43
