78 Equanimity, part 1

10 Oct 2011

We come back to equanimity and Alan talks about it from 3 different levels:
Coarse mind - Shantideva: “If there is something you can do about it don’t worry. If there’s nothing you can do about it, don’t worry”
Subtle mind - Everything arises as a manifestation of our own karma. “I will paint from my own mind. All I’m seeing/experiencing are appearances from my coarse mind” Consider what you’ve contributed but don’t respond with craving or hostility.
Rigpa - Everything is an expression of the Buddha Mind. An all-pervasive display of compassion
Meditation starts at 10:47
