A talk given during Sravasti Abbey’s annual Exploring Monastic Life program in 2011.

  • How to stop living on automatic
  • Monastic life gives us the space to examine how our senses work, how our feelings arise, and how the objects of our desire are impermanent, selfless, and unsatisfactory
  • Mara and his army
  • Questions and answers
    • Going to extremes
    • Clutching to sense pleasures
    • Making a big deal of our emotions
    • Meditative stabilization
    • Is it a given that a monastic has to teach?
