How free would your life be if you gave up unreal expectations? Try to remember something too important to forget. Renunciation is where you are allowing yourself to be obedient to the call of the heart – what do you really want to say ‘yes’ to? One of her telling quotes is ” … there is no spiritual development without renunciation, and no renunciation without spiritual development …”
Saddhanandi begins this Dharmabyte with a poem by Naomi Shihab Nye called The Art of Disappearing. From the very rich and reflective talk entitled Renunciation - Tasting Freedom, the first of three talks given on the 2009 UK Women’s Order / Mitra Event. It’s based on the first section of Tsongkhapa’s short text “The Three Principle Aspects of the Path”.
Given at Taraloka, May 2009.
