The Body – Dhamma Reflections on ageing, sickness and death by the nuns of the Theravada Community

Posted on | July 25, 2018 | No Comments

The Body - Buddhist Dhamma TalksThe Body with the subtitle Dhamma Reflections on ageing, sickness and death by the nuns of the Theravada Community is written and compiled by the nuns Ajahn Sundara, Ajahn Candasiri and Ajahn Metta. This collection of nuns’ talks, which were originally offered to the monastic communities and during meditation retreats for lay people, focus on two main themes. The first is obvious but, remarkably, overlooked by many people: our very existence as a physical presence – how that changes and how it ends. The second theme, the Buddha’s teaching, which he referred to as the Four Noble Truths, begins with what is obvious: ‘Life is stressful’, However, having enumerated the causes of this state of affairs, it quickly moves on to the supremely subtle remedy known as ‘letting go’.
