An expanded commentary on Dharmarakshita’s The Wheel of Sharp Weapons given at Sravasti Abbey from 2004-2006.
- Making clear aspirations on how we want to live our lives
- Seeing clearly that the enemy is the self-centered attitude
- Invoking our own wisdom (and that of the buddhas and bodhisattvas) to cut wrong conception
- The four distortions
- Focusing on the “taking” part of the taking-and-giving meditation
