Taste of Buddhism: Spiritual Democracy (Live-Streamed via Tse Chen Ling)
Sunday, July 19, 2020 , 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
In everyday life we’re torn between fierce attachment to our loved ones and anger at those that give us trouble. Buddhism, democracy, and social justice tell us that all people deserve the same rights and freedoms: we’re all equal, we all deserve happiness. But in everyday life we don’t always feel that way. The Buddhist concept of equanimity, applied to our everyday relationships and the painful daily news, teaches us a technique of “spiritual democracy” for developing healthy feelings of connection to others—even those we most despise.
