Wheel of Sharp Weapons: Verses 64-66

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

An expanded commentary on Dharmarakshita’s The Wheel of Sharp Weapons given at Sravasti Abbey from 2004-2006.

  • In the emptiness meditation, the difficulty of getting a feeling for the negated object
  • Our relationship between leaders and followers
  • When we’re a teacher, having our students turn on us
  • Not having too many expectations of sentient beings
  • Tight-rope walk of trusting others to do what they say they’ll do, but not having too many expectations
  • Putting our trust in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha because they are infallible in the sense that the Dharma is the completely pure path
  • Not seeking position and recognition, but instead devoting ourselves to practice
  • Surrendering our self-centeredness
  • Having miraculous powers is not necessarily a sign that somebody is spiritually realized
  • When we have a genuine realization of emptiness, our respect for karma and its results becomes even deeper
