Buddhist resources on coping with pain

Postby danieLion » Thu Jul 26, 2012 2:32 am

I guess this is just informational. These are only the ones I've listened to or read. So, if you know of more please add, especially if they're suttas with content about pain, illness, sickness, aging, death, healing, etc... .
Kind wishes.
Daniel

Have you tried the paritta chants on the 7 factors of enlightenment? They are suposed to cure illnesses. I've had a tooth ache one time, i read one of the parittas on the 7FOE and the pain went away. Coincidence? Maybe, but for someone who is in real pain, it wouldn't hurt to try.
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

Note that the parittas on the 7FOE were rcited by a monk to a sick person. Even the Buddha once heard a paritta by someone else, so maybe the full power of a paritta is only harnessed when it is recited to you by a monk.

Two talks titled Pain by Joseph Goldstein

4.13.83 (IMSRC)
Stream: http://dharmaseed.org/talks/audio_player/96/1405.html

Download: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/96/talk/1405/

5.24.83 (IMSRC)
Stream: http://dharmaseed.org/talks/audio_player/96/1390.html

Download: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/96/talk/1390/

These talks are excellent. They're essentially the same talk, except for the Q & As which are both also superb.

Topics covered: types of pain, self-pity & pain, fear & pain, pain & samādhi/as a concentration object/aid to awakening, healing, pain & humor, forgiveness, trust.

The April talk has a dead air gap from 29:40-35:14 and the May talk has a shorter one from 29:40-32:40.

Pain & Trust by Joseph Goldstein

Stream: http://dharmaseed.org/talks/audio_player/96/1456.html

Download: http://www.dharmaseed.org/teacher/96/talk/1456/

Some redundancy with two I posted above, but there's also some new stuff that's helpful.

Best,
Daniel
