คำสอนสั้น ๆ หลวงพ่อชา 2

When sitting in meditation, say,

Happiness and suffering do not depend on being poor or rich, they depend on having the right or wrong understanding in our mind. - Ajahn Chah

If you listen to the Dhamma teachings but don't practice you're like a ladle in a soup pot. The ladle is in the soup pot every day, but it doesn't know the taste of the soup. You must reflect and meditate. - Ajahn Chah

Do everything with a mind that lets go. Do not expect praise or reward. - Ajahn Chah


When one does not understand death, life can be very confusing. - Ajahn Chah

Just know what is happening in your mind - not happy or sad about it, not attached. If you suffer see it, know it, and be empty. It's like a letter - you have to open it before you can know what's in it. - Ajahn Chah

Know and watch your heart. It's pure but emotions come to colour it. - Ajahn Chah

To give up doing evil is more important than making merit. - Ajahn Chah

Looking for peace is like looking for a turtle with a mustache: You won't be able to find it. But when your heart is ready, peace will come looking for you. - Ajahn Chah

If you let go a little you will have a little happiness. If you let go a lot you will have a lot of happiness. If you let go completely you will be free. - Ajahn Chah

Letting go a little brings a little peace. Letting go a lot brings a lot of peace. Letting go completely brings complete peace. - Ajahn Chah

Mindfulness is life. Whenever we don’t have mindfulness, when we are heedless, it’s as if we are dead. - Ajahn Chah

There are two kinds of suffering. There is the suffering you run away from, which follows you everywhere. And there is the suffering you face directly, and so become free. - Ajahn Chah

A woman wanted to know how to deal with anger. I asked when anger arose whose anger it was. She said it was hers. Well, if it really was her anger, then she should be able to tell it to go away, shouldnt she? But it really isn't hers to command. Holding on to anger as a personal possession will cause suffering. If anger really belonged to us, it would have to obey us. If it doesn't obey us, that means it's only a deception. Don't fall for it. Whenever the mind is happy or sad, don't fall for it. Its all a deception. - Ajahn Chah

When the heart truly understands, it lets go of everything. - Ajahn Chah

Anything which is troubling you, anything which is irritating you, THAT is your teacher. - Ajahn Chah

Whenever we feel that we are definitely right, so much so that we refuse to open up to anything or anybody else, right there we are wrong. It becomes wrong view. When suffering arises, where does it arise from? The cause is wrong view, the fruit of that being suffering. If it was right view it wouldn't cause suffering. - Ajahn Chah

To observe and watch one's own mind is something really interesting. The untrained mind will run and follow its old habit patterns. Because it has not been trained and taught, it will get lost in all kinds of stories and issues. Therefore we have to train our mind. The meditation practice in Buddhism is all about training one's own mind. - Ajahn Chah
