37 Practices: Verses 17-19

Part of a series of talks on The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas given during a weekend retreat in Medan, Indonesia, organized by Vihara Borobodur Medan and Majelis Buddhayana Indonesia-Sumut.

  • Three ways that a criticizer benefits us
  • Looking at the usual way our self-centered thought responds to adversity and using the instructions to transform the mind
  • What it means to take on the misdeeds and pain of others
  • When things are going well we may forget about the Dharma
  • Fame and fortune has no essence, it comes and goes. It’s better not to cling to it and not be conceited about having it
