The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
Tara Brach's Dharma Talks
Tara Brach
A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.
2001-06-13 Transforming Fear 59:17
When we are identified inside the body of fear, our life contracts and our heart becomes hard. With the practices of mindfulness and compassion, we open our sense of being into the loving awareness that has room for fear.
