2022-12-31 Finding Wholeness in a Broken World 57:19
Susie Harrington
We live in two worlds - our small personal world and the interconnected world of all beings and the earth. Connecting these two is key to understanding our situation and metabolizing the challenging times we live in. Talk has some loud sounds due to recording errors. A couple moments may be startling for the listener.

2022-12-31 I Will Not Be Scared 10:13
Ayya Medhanandi
We live in a world of toxic fear and earnestly wish for a way beyond it. Devoted to the Buddha’s supreme advice, we undertake this holistic training how to live harmlessly, joyful and at peace in ourselves. With courage and patient humility, we don’t back down when it gets tough or pick and choose only the parts we like. Once the inner world of the mind is purified, liberation dawns. We shall reap untold blessings to the end of selfishness. Wisdom is born and the heart is free.

2022-12-31 A Friend That Will Never Fail Us 27:00
Ayya Medhanandi
With the Buddha as our guide, we walk in his footsteps. If we fall away from the path, we return to it as soon as we can. Just as you steer your car back on the road should it veer off. The mind may be on fire with wanting, fear, grief or anger. Then feel the heat. Know its origin and see its ending – not owning nor feeding it, let it subside. Here and now, awareness and wisdom deepen. We are waking up. And we discover – that true friend resides within our own heart.
