Where does wisdom come from? Not from universities – they teach old knowledge. Wisdom comes from a deep, all-round knowing in the present moment – it is empowered by a mind stabilized by the deep silence and peace of meditation. Ajahn Brahm how silence is the source of deepest wisdom.
As this talk was given on the first day of the new year 2016 (happened to be a Friday) we have kept the recording just as it was live streamed ie. leaving in the guided meditation before the talk so you might start the year with a bit of meditation. This recording gives viewers who have never been to Dhammaloka of what it’s like on Friday nights – it always starts with thirty minutes of meditation.
