A reflection on the tale of Patacara’s meeting with the Buddha after the deaths of her sons, husband, and parents and how she attains equanimity in the face of great suffering. A talk given at Amaravati Buddhist Monastery, UK, Death & Dying Retreat.
It is said that there are two rare and precious beings in this world; one who is generous and one who feels gratitude. This talk is about how these qualities bring to our daily lives more happiness, and how generosity
leads to liberation.
