Ven. Chodron talks about how to stop living on automatic. She speaks about how to greet whatever appears and how the monastic life gives us the space to examine how our senses work, how our feelings arise, and how the objects of our desire are impermanent, selfless, and unsatisfactory.
Sravasti Abbey is among the first of its kind: an American monastic community where aspiring monks and nuns and serious lay students can learn to practice the Buddha's pure Dharma. Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron founded Sravasti Abbey in Newport, Washington in 2003. For short, daily Dharma teachings please visit: http://www.youtube.com/sravastiabbey.
