Guy Armstrong's Dharma Talks
Guy Armstrong
What has always engaged me is working with practitioners who are deepening their commitment to the Dharma and then seeing them take a quantum leap in their understanding. My contribution to this commitment is working towards conveying a Theravadan practice with a Mahayana spirit.
2009-02-21 From Ignorance Come Impulses 62:16
The first two links of dependent origination say that ignorance gives rise to volitional formations or impulses. The talk describes succesive layers of obscurations that form from ignorance, to a belief in self, to afflictive emotions, to unskillful actions. The path undoes these layers by focusing, in order, on virtue, mediation, and wisdom, finally penetrating to nibbana.
