Yes, I'm lucky to live near Chithurst - it's a lovely place. Ajahn Sucitto is more often travelling than resident, however, these days.No_Mind wrote: ↑Thu Feb 08, 2018 2:43 pmYour local monastery is Chithurst Buddhist Monastery. Wow .... I am jealous and envious and covetous.Sam Vara wrote: ↑Thu Feb 08, 2018 11:01 amAt my local monastery, Ajahn Sucitto is not going to think any the more of me just because I can parrot verses or recall on demand. He and the other monks treat people in the same coolly benevolent manner regardless of their behaviour. I can't think of a situation where sutta knowledge would benefit me because it does those things you specify.
"Fitting in" is not all that important, so the benefits of reading, studying and learning suttas are low in that direction.
If you need somebody with you, you're already headed in the wrong direction.binocular wrote: ↑Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:04 amGreetings,
I hereby challenge everyone to become an highly organized reader of suttas, so that nobody ever again looks for a sutta.
This means that I challenge everyone, including myself, to make notes when reading suttas, and then to systemize those notes, so that nothing gets lost ever again.
Who's with me?
