  Ayya Medhanandi
There is so much for us to understand. Preparing ourselves for that unfolding of wisdom, take your rightful seat in a balanced way and follow the path inward. First, softly close off all the gates so that our full attention and energy can be used for the mind's exploration. A wondrous journey!

2013-06-30 Sacred Heart: First Inside the Temple 32:40
  Ayya Medhanandi
First talk given inside the new Sati Saraniya Temple building. Within us we have a sacred space that we need to reclaim - the very space inside the heart. Here the Four Noble Truths come to life. Know our suffering, not blaming anyone or any conditions for it, see its origin within us, and right here, resolve it, uproot it. Here then, we realize suffering's end, time and again. And so in clearing the heart, we clear the Path.

2012-04-12 A Wilderness Traveller 39:18
  Ayya Medhanandi
The fearlessness and patience of Malini Weerasooriya is a worthy example to all of us how we can train our minds. When we live driven by ill-will, greed or confusion, we live in a wilderness of the mind. When we hold together in spiritual community, we blaze a trail through that wilderness, establishing trust and persevering. Mindfulness and wisdom lead faith to bear good fruit and guide us as we purify ourselves. We are willing to make sacrifices and even to suffer for the treasures of the Path.
