Teaching and guided meditation on the practice of equanimity.
From Ruth King:
”Equanimity can feel internally like a great mountain, with the mind solid and stable, undisturbed by the changing seasons. Or it can be like the ocean, with the mind vast, deep, and immeasurable, undisturbed by whatever swims, floats, or is housed in its waters. Equanimity can be like a strong fire — roaring, engulfing, and transmuting, undisturbed by whatever is thrown into it. Or like immense space — open, allowing, and receiving, undisturbed by the objects that arise and pass away”
A talk about how the path of wisdom practice leads to insights into emptiness, which then lead to natural compassion and love. Starring Rohitassa, Bahiya, Ananda, and of course our beloved Buddha: "Spiritual Friendship is the Whole of the Holy Life."
