I’d like to share a wonderful Dhamma resource about the ways of Practice. In the following transcripts of 2 Dhamma talks, Luang Por Liem focuses on the work that must be done - to put the Buddha Dhamma into practice, and to follow in the footsteps of the Noble Enlightened ones. It is so easy in these times to become distracted with an intellectual processing of the Dhamma. These very practical instructions make it abundantly clear, where one should focus in order to still mental formations and attain to the highest levels of awakening and peace.
Luang Por Liem is the senior Disciple of Ajahn Chah, “After Luang Pu Chah became severely ill in 1982, he entrusted Luang Por Liem to lead the monastery. Shortly thereafter, as Luang Pu Chah’s illness prevented him from speaking, the Sangha of Wat Nong Pah Pong appointed Luang Por Liem to take over the abbotship.”
I highly recommend these short readings to all practitioners as a source of direction as well as inspiration, that the path to Liberation is here and now and to be ‘walked’.
May they inspire faith and diligence, and result in the peaceful abiding of Santi
And here is a lovely inspiring talk that was given to the Australian Sangha Association in 2006; Following the footsteps of the Enlightened Beings. Note: it is first written in Thai, the English translation follows afterwards.
