Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni's Dharma Talks at New York Insight Meditation Center
Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni
Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni has been meditating for 35 years, 25 of which she has been an ordained Buddhist nun. In 2009, after 20 years in monasteries associated with the Ajahn Chah Forest Tradition, she returned to the US and founded Awakening Truth, an organization whose mission is to share essential teachings and strengthen the relationship between monastic and lay practitioners. Awakening Truth’s eventual aim is to create a Bhikkhuni training monastery and modern Dhamma village. Amma skillfully blends the rigor of early Buddhist teachings with the gentle encouragement to discover one’s own path.

2017-05-27 Access to Awakening: Divine Sourcing vs. Self-Sourcing Morning Talk 57:25
The Buddha taught that that key to peace, joy and happiness is release: a state of mind and heart not driven by a relentless insistence that life, in this moment, be other than as it is. This capacity for freedom is available every moment yet is often obscured by our agitated minds and wounded hearts. When we shift away from self-sourcing and turn towards any one of the many facets of awakening, and start divine sourcing we let go, and experience what is timeless, luminous and boundless. This day-long retreat will combine the steady focus and insight of Vipassana meditation, with the relational practice of inquiry to find our own access to awakening.
