Less of Me, More of We

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 11 Dec, 2014 - 00:00
Talk given at BigFutureBuddhaNow, the 7th annual BIG Young Buddhists weekend. What is it to have a Big Future, how do prevailing cultural values influence us and our engagement with the Dharma? One answer is to engage as wholeheartedly as we are able to with building Sangha and sharing our lives with others. If we are less self preoccupied and more concerned about others we will find personal happiness and be a force for good in the world.
