I have found these teachings very interesting and helpful, and at times insightful, or should I say clearing the view I have, and similar to the talk I went to by Venerable Ashin Nyanissara, both (talk and books) being mutually connected in a way although from different countries. I see through these talks a teacher who is kind and gentle, yet with a keen sense of direction and uncompromising in their training.
As I spent time at Amaravati I had the fortune of reading a Biography by Ajahn Jayasaro, I am not sure if it has been published in book form yet, which like his video biography of the teacher shows a side not seen often, but this collection has the benefit of being in three parts and a fuller spectrum of this great masters attitude to practice and personality can be seen.
This time at Amaravati also gave me a chance to here stories of meetings with the great master, from both lay people and ordained members of the sangha at different times, which showed how he adapted to meet the needs of the listener, this expression can be seen in the sections as the talks are divided up into topics of daily life practice, formal practice, and renunciant practice; the third mainly to ordained members of the sangha so deal with issues ranging from laxity in the discipline, reminders of how a renunciant should act, too personal anecdotes of how he learnt to deal with the rules.
I look forward to finishing the talks I am yet to read & here is a link to the full collection for download individual sections can be downloaded here.
