2014-10-07 Emotions: A Dynamic Response 52:19
  Shaila Catherine
This talk was given as a part of the series "Enhancing Mindfulness Skills: A Seven-Week Series Dedicated to Cultivating Transformative Insight." What we conventionally call "emotions" are classified simply as "mental states" in Buddhist psychology. There are wholesome mental states, such as joy, empathy, love, benevolence, gratitude, and compassion. There are also unwholesome mental states, such as greed, envy, covetousness, fear, and anger. This talk focused on unwholesome mental states that are linked to greed, anger, and delusion. In our meditation practices or in our daily lives we may encounter intense, unwholesome mental states. We may be unwilling or be afraid to feel them. However, the healing, wisdom, and understanding will not come through denial and judgment which can separate us from our own emotions. Rather, wisdom will develop out of a deep acceptance and full understanding of the patterns that affect our lives. A calm examination of difficult mental states offers us a rich arena for understanding the nature of mind.
