2015-12-20 Seven Freedom Lights 32:17
  Ayya Medhanandi
The Buddha gave us seven factors of enlightenment to brighten and polish the mind. Three of these factors are dynamic - they are the spiritual skills that help us to remove obstacles, make the path smooth, and allow us to practice forgiveness and compassion.  These in turn give rise to the four brightening enlightenment factors which wash out the defilements and enable us to move towards freedom.

2015-12-20 Virtue Goes Full Circle 30:11
  Ayya Medhanandi
Virtue creates a force in the heart, a field of goodness, from generosity to joy to enlightenment and back again. Once there is joy in the heart, the mind finds ease to go to its depths. Be your own doctor, self-examine, see with the inner eye to discern and resolve our inner dis-ease and free the mind. Dukkha is not the problem, it is our teacher.

2015-10-11 On The Wings of the Breath 17:38
  Ayya Medhanandi
Using the breath to move into the silent space in the heart and attentively following its rhythm, the breath becomes our whole world. We let go of all objects that arise, all thought, as we stay present and aware in the simple current of breathing. In these moments of pure presence, we are planting the priceless seeds of our awakening.
