Is work just a necessity or a source of fulfillment? Is a career a hindrance or a support to our happiness and unfoldment as individuals? Should we be aiming at getting the ‘right work/life balance’ or moving beyond such distinctions? Keturaja explores Buddhist teachings on right livelihood and reflects on their relevance for us today. This talk was given at Cambridge Buddhist Center, 2018.
Here Prajnamati offers gentle guidance for meditation inspired by the Anapanasati Sutta. In meditation we choose to center our attention on what arises – initially we may tighten or harden or contract which is movement out of meditation towards hindrance. There is another direction we can go, alternatively we can relax into our experience and move into the point of freedom.
