What sort of attitude should someone who wants to succeed in meditation have? Where do qualities like humility, contentment, energy, mindfulness and mental calm fit into our whole life path as meditators, family members, employees, bosses, friends, community members and more? In this talk, Ayya Suvira explains the eight thoughts of a great person in the Buddha’s teachings at AN 8.30 and their relevance to lay life, success in meditation, and beyond.
