Shantideva: How to Work with Emotional Afflictions
Tampa | April 2, 2017
In this talk, Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner explains Shantideva's teachings on working with emotional afflictions from the fourth chapter of "The Way of the Bodhisattva." He explains that we need to clearly identify mind-states like greed, anger, fear and lust as enemies to a mind of peace and ease. Then, when they arise, we want to learn to label them clearly and not indulge them. Ultimately, if we want to be free of these afflictions, we need to look deeply and investigate them in order to see that there is no substance to them and that they are only arising within our minds.
