In this eight-part series, various speakers explore radical ways of training the mind, based on eight pithy and challenging verses from the Tibetan tradition.

These active reflections offer a number of attitudes you can take up in order to overcome self-clinging.

In part 5 of the series, Subhadramati takes the challenge a step further, by flipping our ideas of defeat and victory and suggesting that it often isn't in our interest to win our battles with others.

Talk given at the London Buddhist Centre, 2021.

Fifth verse

"When someone out of envy does me wrong,

By insulting me and the like,

May I accept defeat,

And offer victory to them."
