Skillful Insight and Knowledge Gained
These are recordings of our end-of-year classes at Cross River Meditation Center in Frenchtown New Jersey On December 26, 28, and 30, 2017.
The integration of the Eightfold Path as the framework for awakening and for mindfulness of life as life occurs is built upon a strong foundation of concentration developed through Shamatha-Vipassana meditation.
The depth of understanding of our sangha is remarkable as shown by these discussions and the questions asked.
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 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 contextual edits to the suttas from these sources for further clarity, to modernize language, to minimize repetition, and maintain relevance to Dependent Origination and Four Noble Truths.
