In these talks, Jirka Hladis provides profound analytical meditation instructions based on numerous Sutras. In the sutras, Buddha taught that ending suffering depends on directly knowing, fully understanding, and letting go of our sense faculties, sense objects, and sense consciousnesses (sense triads or dhatus) as well as the feelings that arise in dependence on the dhatus. The detailed instructions for meditating on the sense triads are found in Buddha’s teaching on Penetration of Dhatus. Based on this Sutra, Jirka guides us through Buddha’s three stages of meditation on the sense triads, including the relationship between these practices and the 12 Nidanas. These analytical meditation practices are profound and Jirka’s instructions are detailed, precise, and insightful. He frequently entertains questions, further clarifying the instructions. At the beginning of each talk, Jirka demonstrates what he taught in the previous talk by leading a guided analytical meditation. He concludes by providing commentary on The Simile of the Great Log, where Buddha uses the image of a log floating down the River Ganges to teach us how to avoid being distracted from the genuine path. All of the Sutras discussed in these talks are included with the recording. Because Jirka used a white board and diagrams extensively, you may find the video recordings more helpful than the audio recordings (MP3 or Audio Download).
