Where does happiness lie? In this first of 4 talks we explore the intention to be happy particularly with regard to developing and increasing wholesome states. Wise effort in terms of Dharma practiced is explored.
This talk begins a series on five spiritual faculties--the great allies on the journey of awakening. Faith is the quality that begins this journey and helps us to stay both energized and committed. It is our heart's engagement.
This is the first of a 3 part series on this Sutta: "Ten subjects for frequent recollection," that help to align our intention to our spiritual practice and to bring on retreat. Themes include renunciation, working with habits and ethical conduct.
