I found this short five minute video from Ajahn Amaro to be very inspiring. I recommend checking out some of the other videos from this channel too if you have time.

Stop Thinking by Ajahn Punnadhammo.

Some interesting points towards the end of the tape.

6 months of bliss- after 6 months of complete solitude, Ajahn Brahm recounts his experience and relates it to the Dhamma overall.

One of my favorite talks by him - uplifting, eye opening and encouraging.

The world is swept away. It does not endure...
The world is without shelter, without protector...
The world is without ownership. One has to pass on, leaving everything behind...
The world is insufficient, insatiable, a slave to craving.

Hi RB
Thanks for the video.
I am not sure whether that Dhamma talk is any relevance to lay people.
It is not possible for a lay person to lock him/her self in a room and expect someone to provide food and lodging for six months.
I feel that he could not convey his message to the audience.
If you have any comment please make it in the following thread.

Did Buddha say "Do nothing"?

Joseph Goldstein - "Mindfulness: what it is and not" one of the finest and inspiring talks on the subject.

This is an excellent talk from Ajahn Amaro, covering Hiri and Ottapa, and the proper attitude to having done something wrong. Highly recommended.

A short talk by Thanissaro Bhikkhu on the benefits of gaining inner wealth as opposed to gaining wealth in the traditional sense:

Four Brahma Viharas by Ven Punnaji

Slightly different approach:
- He say Metta start by observing five precepts
- Four Brhma Viharas are not four different things, but the same thing in a different level. (each level is more sublime than the one before)
- Metta is the loving kindnes with breadth and width.
- Karuna is the loving kindness with breadth, width and depth
- Muditha is the happiness of selfless lovingkindness
- Upekkha is the mind without disturbance
