Bhāvanā Day with Ayya Susīla

Devotees listening to Ayya Susila's teaching with great interest and attentiveness.

On 1 December, Ayya Susīla led the Bhāvanā Day (one-day meditation retreat) at Nalanda Centre.  After the morning Pūja, Ayya Susīla delivered a profound and inspiring Dhamma talk themed “Returning to the Purity of Mind”.  Ayya shared that one should not just focus on having clarity of mind, but also its purity through the cultivation of morality and wisdom.
