Khanda (Aggregates of Being) | Ajahn Tate

This episode is a dhamma talk given by the Thai meditation master Ajahn Tate and is titled “Khanda” which translates as “The Aggregates of Existence”. According to the Buddha and to the Awakened meditation masters of all ages, a human being is made up of five aggregates or “groups of existence”, namely: physical form or the body; consciousness; feelings; perceptions and mental formations. In this teaching Ajahn Tate explains how to understand and to see directly into these five aggregates of being.
