Starting from the context of the teachings of dependent origination, we examine three interrelated forms of ignorance -- personal, social and universal -- and how they condition the judgmental mind. We then can see how two ways of transformation can transform, over time, these forms of core ignorance: (1) The way of mindfulness, investigation and accessing transforms ignorance, and (2) the way of cultivation [ ] qualities, especially through "heart practices."
What brings us to spiritual practice? What has moved, inspired and urged you to find a clear and wholesome ‘other way’ than feeling overrun with old reactive habit patterns of sadness, fear, attachment, anger, and confusion.? Samvega is the movement of the heart/an inner response towards an urgency to practice and an urgency to awaken.
