Posted by Sadayasihi on Wed, 11 Apr, 2018 - 17:07

This Dharmabyte podcast is aptly named “It’s Not Fair!” by Kalyanaprabha. Life’s unfair, what can we do about it? We can practice the Dharma and follow the Buddha’s teachings.

Kalyanaprabha’s sober yet uplifting talk encourages us to do just that. Excerpt from the talk: What to Do In An Unfair World.

Dharmabyte: Breaking Through with Awareness

Posted by Sadayasihi on Wed, 11 Apr, 2018 - 16:56

In this Dharmabyte podcast entitled, “Breaking Through with Awareness”, we are reminded that awareness is the great dissolver of negative emotions. At times in the spiritual life we may need considerable energy to overcome obstacles, such as negative emotions, psychological conditionings, rational thinking, and even the sense of ‘time’ itself. How, when, and where can we break through?

From the talk Breaking Through into Buddhahood by Sangharakshita given in 1969.
