Inviting Life’s Difficulties to Tea

Jan 19, 2011

One of the most illuminating themes in the Buddha’s life story was the regular appearance of Mara–god of selfishness and greed, anger and fear, doubt and shame. Each time Mara surfaced, the Buddha’s response was to say “I see you Mara,” and invite him to tea. This talk explores how such unconditional friendliness and wisdom can bring healing and freedom to our lives.
