70 Responding to the Reality of Change

20 May 2011

This afternoon, Alan first gives a lengthy Dharma talk about different methods for responding to the reality of change. He contrasts the materialistic and Buddhist views, and goes into detail about how attachment and grasping block one’s ability to achieve freedom from the suffering of change.

This is followed by an unguided meditation on compassion for the suffering of change.

Editor’s Note: The unguided meditation and brief Q&A session afterwards are not included in the recording due to a recording error.
