Bhante Upasama conducts an intermediate / advanced meditation class for approximately one hour. Recorded at Dhammaloka Buddhist Centre, Perth, Western Australia.
Venerable Upasama gave us a dharma talk before meditation on dukkha and being happy. Dukkha (Pāli - Sanskrit) is an important Buddhist concept, commonly translated as "suffering", "pain" or "unsatisfactoriness".
Following the dharma talk Venerable Upasama guided us through a meditation well suited to beginners and experienced meditators. The meditation was different in that he guided us through the beginning with a story to trigger our imaginations.
Following the meditation Venerable opened the floor to questions on any
subject. His answers were detailed in that he provided examples.
Venerable Upasama has started teaching and will be a most welcome teacher at The Armadale Meditation Group. Venerable gave a Dharma Talk on the teachings of Buddha, then an excellent meditation and concluded the night by making us all laugh.
