Ajahn Brahm Quotes

BunksBunks VeteranAustralia Veteran

Hi all

I know there are a few Ajahn Brahm fans out there.

My friend has been handed the task of putting together a book of his most inspirational quotes to raise money for our local monastery. She has asked for my help.

I shared a favourite of mine earlier in the Buddhist quotes page.

Feel free to add any of your favourites to this page. Please ensure you include reference to your source.

Thanks 🙏

    When you have abandoned all past and future, it is as if you have come alive. You are here, mindful...the nature of all types of consciousness reveals itself.

    — Ajahn Brahm

    I liked this quote, when reflecting on it I found that letting go of the future is a lot harder than letting go of the past. I came across it while wandering around azquotes.com, I have no idea which book or discourse it comes from sadly.

    I've never met a criminal, only people who have committed a crime.

    Yes! He's hilarious.

    I once heard a talk he gave at the Buddhist centre I attend where he was telling the (predominantly) Sri Lankan kids in attendance that someone had to come bottom of the class in exam results and that the marks E and F (both fails in Australia) stood for Excellent and Fantastic.

    I wish I could've seen the faces of the parents in the room :D
