Dear Open Heart Project,
I’m so happy to send you the fourth video in our eight video series on the noble eightfold path of Buddhism. We have already discussed Right View, Right Intention, and Right Speech. Today we discuss Right Action. Interestingly, right action has more to do with what we do not do than anything else. Please have a listen and let me know what you think! I always love to hear from you.
The discussion ends with a guided 10-minute meditation.
Hope you are well! See you in two weeks.
P.S. Please join Buddhist teacher and author, Michael Carroll, for a five week program, starting on April 12th: Lending a Hand: Avalokitesvara and the Art of Mind Protection. This program is FREE! Sign up here. Program description:
The traditional Buddhist image of compassion is the many armed Bodhisattva, Avalokitesvara, whose nature is to “lend a hand” to those who suffer: to nourish, inspire, heal, and protect. But how does such compassion work? When life presents us with demanding challenges that can be disheartening, captivating and at times terrifying, is it possible to “protect” ourselves and others from such challenges or is such a prospect futile? During this 5-session program, we will explore the principle of “mind protection” and how the skillful means of Avalokitesvara can offer us insight into living a more compassionate and fulfilled life.
