Happy 4th of July...
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness...
May all beings have happiness and the cause of happiness...
Safe firework season, for places of drought.

Ajahn Brahm's and Ajahn Brahmali's Sri Lankan leg available on video over here! Files are pretty big (north of 200mb, I think).
Some of these lectures - I believe - were primarily for the Sangha (monks + nuns) - and thus, a more meditation slant...
Have fun.

Nineteen talks by on one Ajahn Nyanadhammo; MP3, less than 20MB per talk, English.
I've just listened to the first four - and there were pretty amazing (meaning to me....)

I like for you to be still.
While I feel my way through the landscape of your face;
While I connect the dots 
On the pixelated passport photograph fading fast.
Did your face twitch when you dreamed?
Did your skin look pale without the touch of sun? 
When you wanted to be left alone and they kept asking questions did you-like your older sister stare hard at a spot on the ground?
Did you know everyone tells her how she reminds them of you now that she is seventeen? 
When you tried not to cry did you bite down on your bottom lip the way your mother does?
Did your skin break out once a month like mine?
Did you have eyes the colour of ash like your mothers' mother or did you take after your fathers' mother...the one who came to the airport to see you off...
I was asked not to tell you that she died -- you're father wanted to wait till you were home 
He said you were her favourite.
Your baby sister said you liked her the best. 
She said she was eight when you left.
Your brother...doesn't say much.
Perhaps he remembers too much.
Perhaps he wishes you hadn't gone and left him to be the eldest when he was still twelve 
You were twenty four when they killed you.
I was twenty four not long ago. 
But you were always older than me
I imagine what you were like...I hope you don't mind
I was waiting to meet you
Who knows...we might have even been friends.
I needed you to be still
While I traced a face from memory 
That was not my own.
Then there was still time and I thought
If I get it right...if I come close enough...
I could make them see your eyes...
I thought 
it might make all the difference.

A very interesting Q&A,...
 
Great little story on our brother, friend, and teacher Ajahn Sona, just published in the Winter issue of Northwest Dhamma News.
