During a two-week visit to Abhayagiri Monastery after spending a year on retreat in Thailand, Ajahn Jayanto speaks about how the development of lovingkindness requires complete, unconditional acceptance of ourselves. This acceptance allows us to release the need to have a secure self-image. Rather than craving to become what we think we should be, we can develop an awareness that is intrinsic to the mind by paying attention to ordinary experience. This talk was given at Abhayagiri Monastery on November 6, 2012.
