Ajahn Brahmali Dhamma Talk: “What Is & Isn’t a Jhana”

Date(s) - 13 Jun 2024
6:45 pm - 8:30 pm

Brighton Community Base
South Wings Conference Room, 113 Queens Road
United Kingdom



The Buddha spoke about jhana, the most profound stages of meditation, as being essential to the path towards Enlightenment, but are these states attainable in this day and age? How do we know if we, our teachers, or our friends have experienced a jhana and more importantly, if we are heading in the right way?


In this talk, Ajahn Brahmali, a senior student of meditation master Ajahn Brahm, will compare the word of the Buddha to some of the misconceptions of jhana today and share tips for putting the causes in place for jhana to happen in a way that leads to wisdom.


This evening programme will begin with a short guided meditation, followed by a Dhamma talk by Ajahn Brahmali. After the talk there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
