Part 2: Relating to the Fearsome Deities

Aug 28, 2013

Whenever Mara–the shadow side–appeared during the Buddha’s life, his response was simple and liberating: “I see you Mara,” and, “Please, come…let’s have tea.” In that spirit, this talk explores three approaches to relating to fear with a mindful and compassionate presence.

The flute meditation at the end of the talk is given by Akal Dev.
