Q: This is from yesterday’s meditation but Is there a way to do use that approach with past experience of pain/ suffering that you have been pushing away/ averting… as in can you use a certain for of this approach incorporate this back into your current experience to allow it to release ?
Adrienne Egan
01:25:20
Q if there is no soul in the buddhist sense, and nothing 'enduring' what bit gets reincarnated?
Rachael Hart
01:25:21
Q I find I have a somewhat obsessive tendency to have the fitted sheet (or carpet laid as you put it) constantly in order and if it’s not neat then I often feel unsettled. What are some ways of practicing letting go of perfection? 🙏🏼
Victoria Barron
01:25:38
so if nothing is yours, what are you?
Helena Bonett
01:25:56
Q: In what ways is the Buddhist conception of consciousness (and it returning in rebirth) different from the conception of the soul? (Apologies for the heavy question so early in the morning!)
Anna Norbury
01:26:05
Q from Ben - so where the self if not there?
Mira
01:26:12
Q: this made me feel a little dissociated and distant, other times more sensitive and open. not to be blunt but what is the lesson of this teaching?
Irene Amore

Q I feel like I've been trying to work really hard in the last few months in meditation (and outside) on feeling more embodied - trying to pay attention to my physical sensations. So it feels odd to then be saying 'they're not me'. Could you talk about that a bit more?

Jasper Llewellyn
01:28:16
Q: I'm really new to Buddhism and was wondering if you could recommend a book that would be good to start reading to introduce me to the basic ideas? Thank you, Maitreyabandhu, have had a great week.
Howard G
01:28:59
Thank you Maitreyabandu! That seemed to make all the three conditions connect, it made sense how when you practice one the others have to be there in the background.
Peter [Queensland]

Lucy Jamieson

Q You talked the other day about consciousness preceding matter. Would you say that the self is more akin to consciousness or to matter? Or neither..?
Bronwyn ’s iPhone
01:30:21
Thanks so much. Very difficult to separate ‘my’ ‘self’ from “my” sore hip. I’m so deeply wedded to identifying with my body sensations as mine. Even as I’m saying the words, not me, not I, not myself, I’m still feeling all of me. This is the first time I’ve done this practice, I think it would take a long time to convince myself to
Howard G
01:30:40
Q I was getting confused, how are the 3 elements of conditioned existence different to the 3 signs of being which The Buddha taught also?
parina
01:32:12

Iain
01:37:42
Q. Practical question: if one has a regular samatha practice (including m bhavana) how often would you say to add in prajna practice?
Manju Ray
01:37:43
But HE SAID ..NOT ...TO ...GET ...DISTRACTED ...ABOUT ... GOD ...AND ...REBIRTH... ...FOCUS ...ON ...GET ...RID ...FROM ... SUFFERINGS (DUKSHA)....FIRST.... THEN ... ONLY ...POSSIBLE ...TO ...UNDERSTAND .... YOUR .. EXISTANCE ...IN ..UNIVERSE
