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.
Even if someone out of strong desire
Steals all your wealth or has it stolen,
Dedicate to him your body, possessions
And your virtue, past, present and future—
This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.
- Gun violence and gun control
- Counteracting emotions when possessions are stolen
- Using the loss of possessions to generate a mind of generosity
- What it means to give our body, possessions and virtue
