Re: Any recommended teachings, talks, or advice for dealing with noise?

Why waste your time being interested in those things? It's the nature of light to be bright. It's the nature of noise to be loud. That's what their functions are.

Offtopic, but interesting quote from page 159: Cause of Confusion: Some people do not appreciate meditation since they do not take the Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta seriously. The Buddha’s teaching is simple and straightforward, but they mix it up with the teaching of the Abhidhamma and Commentaries — hence th...

Re: Sutta about not listening to music

The ear is burning, sounds are burning... https://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/sn/sn35/sn35.028.nymo.html Burning with what? Burning with the fire of lust, with the fire of hate, with the fire of delusion. I say it is burning with birth, aging and death, with sorrows, with lamentations, with pa...
