Reconciling The Dhamma With Other Practices

by

This is a talk from our Thursday Dhamma class. A common challenge when developing the Dhamma as the Buddha taught is reconciling the Dhamma with other wholesome practices such as Yoga. One of our staff teachers, Jen, teaches that by maintaining fidelity to the Dhamma one can easily reconcile two practices that, at times, may seem to be in conflict.

My Dhamma articles and talks are based on the Buddha's teachings  (suttas) as preserved in the Sutta Pitaka, the second book of the Pali Canon. I have relied primarily on Thanissaro Bhikkhu’s excellent and insightful translation of the Pali generously made freely available at his website Dhammatalks.org, as well as the works of Acharya Buddharakkhita, Nyanaponika Thera, John Ireland, Maurice Walsh, Hellmuth Hecker, and Sister Khema, among others, as preserved at Access To Insight.

Also, I have found Bhikkhu Bodhi's translations from Wisdom Publications Pali Canon Anthologies to be most informative and an excellent resource.

I have made edits to the suttas from these sources for further clarity, to modernize language, to minimize repetition, and maintain contextual relevance to Dependent Origination and Four Noble Truths.
