A series of talks based on Don’t Believe Everything You Think given at Sravasti Abbey’s monthly Sharing the Dharma Day starting in March 2013. The book is a commentary on The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas.
Bound himself in the jail of cyclic existence,
What worldly god can give you protection?
Therefore when you seek refuge, take refuge in
The Three Jewels that will not betray you—
This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.
- What it means to take refuge
- The Three Jewels and why they are proper objects of refuge
- The analogy of doctor, medicine and nurses
- The meaning of faith in Buddhism and cultivating the three types of faith
