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.
Like the dew on the tip of a blade of grass, pleasures of the three worlds
Last only a while and then vanish.
Aspire to the never-changing
Supreme state of liberation—
This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.
- Short term worldly pleasures versus long term happiness
- Liberation and it’s causes
- Real freedom is freedom from the inner disturbing attitudes not freedom to follow every impulse
- Cultivating a sense of inner contentment
