Ayya Sobhana's Dharma Talks at Dhammadharini
Ayya Sobhana
Ayya Sobhana has meditated and trained with Bhante Henepola Gunaratana since 1989. Her primary practice is the Eightfold Noble Path, that is, integration of meditation with ethical living and compassionate relationships for the sake of liberation. She ordained in 2003 and obtained full Bhikkhuni ordination at Dambulla, Sri Lanka, in 2006. Last year, Ayya Sobhana moved from the Bhavana Society in West Virginia to Aranya Bodhi Awakening Forest Hermitage, where she is the Prioress. Aranya Bodhi is a new community for monastic women located on the Sonoma Coast of California.
2017-01-18 Dhatuvibhanga Sutta - The Exposition on the Elements 1:25:22
This talk was given at Yoga Mendocino. Ayya Sobhana first leads a meditation based on the first section of the Dhatuvibhanga Sutta using the elements. Then at 35:30 she goes on to summarize the sutta and take questions. This talk was given a few weeks after the bhikkhunis had done an extensive study of the sutta in their winter retreat.
