Stream-entry Buddhist Dharma Talks
by the Buddhist Anagārika Pasannacitta
(a.k.a. Anagārika Michael Turner)
— awakened buddhist enlightenment trainer, teacher, and coach —
Hi! My name is Pasannacitta. I am a pre-monastic Early Buddhist ācariya, an ariya-puggala (sakadāgāmi), and a full-time Buddhist anagārika. I work with dedicated Buddhist practitioners to help them attain measurable progress toward Nibbāna. This special kind of one-on-one training isn't readily available to lay practitioners. If you are interested in joining our growing student community to make veritable progress toward Nibbāna, please visit my training page to learn more; or contact me to discuss becoming a Buddhist trainee today.

A student reached out to me via email for something quick, and being in-between student sessions, I had a few minutes to hop onto a brief video call to answer his question. Here is the recording of that off-the-cuff, momentary interaction.
The Student Question:
"I think I know how to do analytical meditation, but I want clarification on how to do it. I've been inspired to use mettā for the contemplation, but what is the interplay between contemplating and resting in silence? I feel like resting in silence may be a part of it."
Michael Turner is a full-time Buddhist anagārika and ariya-puggala; he is also a deeply accomplished stream-entry mentor, dharma teacher, and, c-level leadership advisor and personal success coach. He emphasises and teaches practical techniques and teachings for our everyday lives to overcome the problems that stand in the way of making veritable progress toward our goals and happiness; he is particularly adept at explaining them in ways that can be easily understood and practiced in the West. He has been meditating and cultivating views and techniques that generate indestructible resilience, inner-strength, and direct experience for more than 30 years and has helped countless numbers of students and clients course-correct their practice to make veritable progress toward happiness, success, and nibbāna.
