Problem playing chanting and meditation MP3s
We've recently changed to a new delivery platform, but and unfortunate side effect appears to be that some people are only able to play talks on their computer.
We're looking into this matter and hope to have a resolution soon.
Recent changes to SoundCloud have also meant that the 'Taking the 5 Precepts' audio on the Dhammaloka Community is not working correctly. We're also working to fix this.

Satipaṭṭhāna and Samādhi, by Ajahn Brahmali
One of the most common unquestioned assumptions among Buddhist meditators is that satipaṭṭhāna is synonymous with vipassanā. This assumption, it seems, often is a result of reading the Satipaṭṭhāna Suttas in isolation without carefully considering the context in which satipaṭṭhāna is used throughout the suttas. (1) When the broader view of the entire Sutta Piṭaka is taken into account, it becomes clear that such an assumption is, at best, only partially correct. In this short study I will investigate the various contexts in which satipaṭṭhāna appears and in particular consider its relationship with samādhi.
