2020-05-29 Cittaviveka Buddhist Monastery Uposatha Public Talk: The Foundation for Relinquishment Is Comfort 51:16
Ajahn Sucitto

Ajahn Sucitto
It’s the compulsiveness and repetitiveness of certain actions that creates the sense of a solid self. So we aim for the end of action, for non-doing, and linger there. Keep relaxing and widening awareness without acting. Energy is released from activations – this is the ending of kamma. *Sutta Reference: AN10:81
