Tuesday mornings, 9:15–10:45 am
When our mind is anxious or worried, when our heart is troubled, when we feel overwhelmed, we will find that we are tightly grasping at things, people, and situations. This grasping is a form of ignorance that abides at our heart and disturbs our mind.
Through understanding and meditating on Buddha’s explanation of ultimate truth, emptiness, our grasping will begin to loosen and our mind will grow lighter. We will develop the flexibility to respond to every situation in a constructive way, and we will glimpse the possibility that our heart can eventually be completely free from suffering.
In this series we will explore these very special meditations, based on the Lamrim meditations in part two of the inspiring new book The Mirror of Dharma with Additions.
