2015-08-06 Three Poisons 44:02
  Bob Stahl
This is the fifth talk in a speaker series titled Fundamental Buddhist Principles 2015. The Three Poisons are greed, hatred and ignorance. They are called the three poisons because they fuel suffering. For example, the nature of desire keeps us wanting something that we can’t quite get. The suffering is the misconception that we need to get that something outside of ourselves in order to be whole. Fortunately, right inside the poisons is the antidote. By relinquishing greed, in its place arises contentment. By relinquishing hatred, in its place arises open heartedness. By relinquishing ignorance, in its place arises clear seeing into the nature of things and into the causes of suffering and the path to freedom.

It is the path towards true happiness and freedom.

  Dori Langevin
When we can wisely relate to grasping, aversion, sleepiness/dullness, restlessness/worry and doubt as visitors rather than enemies, they can transform into their wisdom nature. Note: Description of the gem of sleepiness is at the end of the next morning's instructional sit.
