The Buddhist concept of samvega is the complex emotional response that comes from realising the precarious nature of our existence. It arises when we glimpse the reality of the endless cycle of birth, old age, sickness and death. But samvega is not pessimistic nihilism. Rather, it is a positive and awe-inspiring realisation that helps propel us along the spiritual path.
Join Bhante Akaliko for a guided meditation and a discussion about the transformative effect of samvega and how we can use it in our practice.
The online link will be available closer to the start date.

He first encountered Buddhism as a teenager and spent over twenty years practising in different traditions before taking full ordination with Ajahn Brahm as his preceptor. Venerable Akaliko’s teaching brings the Buddha’s timeless wisdom to today’s problems, helping people find peace and happiness in their lives.
He currently resides with Bhante Sujato at Lokanta Vihara (the Monastery at the End of the World) in Sydney, Australia.
