Today we are going to think about how powerful our minds are. Just by thinking, we can collect good or bad karma. Today the Bhante is going to give us some tips for training our minds. He’ll also tell us a little bit about the great Arahant Monk Upāli. He was the monk who was the top expert in the Vinaya, the rules that monks and nuns follow. We’ll find out how, because of his mind in a previous life, he was born as a low caste barber in his last life.
