The Practice that Protects
In this talk directed at the monastic community at Wat Marp Jan, Ajahn Anan discusses the importance of starting meditation time with loving-kindness practice, dealing with thinking, the recollection of death and corpses as meditation themes, and finding balance in mind training.
Venerable Ajahn Anan Akincaño practiced under the meditation master, Venerable Ajahn Chah Bodhiñāna Thera, before establishing Wat Marp Jan in 1984. Today he is considered one of the most prominent teachers in the Thai Forest Tradition. In this most recent compilation, various disciples of Ajahn Anan translate his talks and discussions about meditation and Dhamma practice.
Renowned Thai Forest meditation master Ajahn Anan Akiñcano has a profound ability of teaching ultimate Truth on many levels, from the mundane to the super-mundane. These teachings are now accessible to the Western World through the gifted translations of Ajahn Anan’s longtime disciple, Ajahn Kalyano. This is the passing on of the Acariya Dhamma, the truth from our teachers.
