Description

Two visitors in the audience work as radiographers, taking X-ray and CT scans and so on. Ajahn Dhammasiha uses the opportunity to remind us that meditators should all be "Radiographers" as well:


We have to go deeper than the superficial and attractive surface of our body.


We have to contemplate what's inside our body: Bones, Blood, Organs, tissue, ligaments, flesh.


The Buddha taught us to develop the perception of the internal body parts whenever we look at attractive bodies, so that we can overcome desire, lust and attachment to the body.


If we can overcome attachement, identification, desire and lust for the physical elements that constitute our body (and others' bodies), we've already accomplished the major part of our journey to enlightenment and freedom.
