Clinging and the Vicissitudes

In this talk, Mary Burns describes how we can have stability of mind even when changes happen in life and we take it personally, thinking things shouldn’t be as they are. We can guard the sense doors and know how to meet with awareness the worldly dhammas of gain and loss, praise and blame, pleasure and pain, fame and disrepute. When we know it, we can meet it in the way that it is, not in the way we thought it should be.

Four Doorways to Speaking and Listening
