The Simile of the Elephant’s Footprint
This meditation and sutta-retreat is dedicated to the development of meditation and the study of aspects of the practice. Ajahn Brahmali focuses on the gradual training and therefore uses the The Shorter Discourse on the Simile of the Elephant’s Footprint, Majjhima Nikāya 27 as the basis for the retreat. Other suttas are used to clarify aspects of the teachings.
