Whatever we’re doing, whether we’re meditating, working, communicating, or singing, becomes a vehicle to ‘grow’ awareness. Mindfulness becomes panoramic and we live with immediacy and creativity. How do we relate to different aspects of our practice? How do we relate to the practice of others? Vajradevi encourages us to be on the lookout for attachment to views regarding our Dharma practice and the tendency to compare ourselves, furthering the divide between self and other.

Excerpted from the talk Ways Out of Clinging and Grasping, part of the series The Great Gathering: Dancing with Pure Presence 2022 recorded at Taraloka Retreat Centre during a retreat for women training for ordination on the theme of the Satipatthana Sutta.
