gift of the teachings
Tara Brach's Dharma Talks
Tara Brach
A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.
1998-09-15 Freedom From Addiction 58:37
From the Buddhist perspective, craving is the cause of suffering. To the extent that we feel discomfort or suffering, we are identified with wanting life to be different is some way. This talk guides us in honesty facing our own areas of attachment, and explores the Buddhist teachings on freedom from addiction.
