some of Buddha’s words on Thinking “Vitakka”

Saturday 6.30 pm

on BSSA YouTube channel

Last Tuesday on zoom Ayya Santacārī Bhikkhunī  discussed three Suttas where the Blessed One explained how we can work with thinking. Since we don’t have a recording to share, Ayya will speak again on this useful and relevant topic this Saurday evvening.

Using the links below, we can look at these suttas line by line exploring the Meaning in English.
The intention is to work through all three if we don’t run out of time.
Most of the time would be on MN 19 & MN 20.
SN 56.7 is short and bridges the other two.

You can also be looking at the same sutta in your own language. I have posted the links to the Sinhala version here, however if you have a different language, the sutta central website very likely has a translation for you as well.  
The Bhante Sujato translations have a cog at the top which allows you to have the Pali displayed line by line under the English translation in any character set you wish.
