Ajahn Brahmali discusses 57th sutta of the Majjhima Nikaya, the Kukkuravatika Sutta, The Ascetic Who Behaved Like A Dog. 

Read MN57 here on Sutta Central.

"Some ascetics in ancient India undertook extreme practices, such as a vow to behave like an ox or a dog. The Buddha meets two such individuals, and is reluctantly pressed to reveal the kammic outcomes of such practice," Sutta Central.

Ajahn Brahmali discusses the 87th sutta from the Majjhima Nikaya: Piyajatika Sutta, “Born from Those Who Are Dear” or “Born From the Beloved.”

Read MN87 on Sutta Central or Access To Insight

“A rare glimpse into the marital life of King Pasenadi, and how he is led to the Dhamma by his Queen, the incomparable Mallika. She confirms the Buddha’s teaching that our loved ones bring us sorrow; but that’s not something a husband, father, and king wants to hear,” Sutta Central.

Read MN7 on Sutta Central or Access To Insight

"The many different kinds of impurities that defile the mind are compared to a dirty cloth. When the mind is clean we find joy, which leads to states of higher consciousness. Finally, the Buddha rejects the Brahmanical notion that purity comes from bathing in sacred rivers," Sutta Central.
