Ajahn Kalyano, himself a pupil of the famous meditation teacher Ajahn Anan, in the tradition of Ajahn Chah, invited Ahba to oversee the opening of the Dhammacakka hall of his monastery in Australia.
In these audio fragments we first hear an introduction by Ajahn Kalyano himself, followed by Ahba’s paritta chant, a blessing in Pali, the language of the ancient scriptures. During the chanting, Ahba sends mettā (loving kindness) to all those present and it is considered a great privilege to be present.
Finally, we hear a short Dhamma-talk by Ahba about generosity, developing and purifying our hearts and mind through meditation and moral behavior, and consciously living together in harmony so that all obstacles can be overcome.
