James Baraz's Dharma Talks at East Bay Insight Meditation Community
James Baraz
I try to convey that the wisdom and compassion we are looking for is already inside of us. I see practice as learning how to purify our mind and heart so we can hear the Buddha inside. In doing so, we naturally embody the dharma and help awaken that understanding and love in others we meet.
2008-08-14 Bodhisattva's Way Of Life - part 3: What Are We Committing To? 47:03
Part 3 of Shantideva’s Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life. Commitment. Just what are we committing to when we decide to become bodhisattvas. One stanza from this chapter is as follows: “For all those ailing in the world, Until every sickness has been healed, May I myself become for them The doctor nurse, the medicine itself.”
