The Five Khandhā (‘Aggregates’) by Ajahn Sucitto
26 augustus @ 16:00 - 31 augustus @ 14:00
“The Buddha often spoke of experience comprising of five khandhā – meaning sections or aggregates. These khandhā, sometimes thought of as components that come together to make an individual, are made up of:
- ‘Conditioning activities’ or ‘Programs’
Interestingly, as well as factors of identity, they can also be seen to cover all conditioned experience. When clung to, the khandhā can increase our feeling of ‘self’ or ‘other’, and in turn, when not clung to, they can help to liberate ourselves from this sense.
This course will encourage us to explore the meaning of the terms, experience how they operate and direct them towards liberation. Time will include regular meditation periods, talks, dialogues, and study.
This course is suitable for experienced practitioners (at least 3 silent retreats and 3 years of meditation practice).
Teacher AJAHN SUCITTO was born in London; he entered monastic life in Thailand in 1975 and since 1978 has lived in Britain. He has been teaching Dhamma since 1980, both in meditation retreats and in talks given regularly in monasteries. He has written a number of and teaches worldwide.
