Stronghold: 10 Jan 2010 http://s3.amazonaws.com/dharmatreasure/CS-01-10-10.mp3Podcast: Download (Duration: 1:06:19 — 60.7MB) One thought on “Stronghold: 10 Jan 2010” Matthew says: March 9, 2012 at 6:34 am This Q&A begins with a discussion of the role of offerings. The question about why make offerings and the way they function as part of the spiritual life. Culadasa discusses the relationship between making offerings and the perfections of generosity and gratitude as well as mindfulness. Following this is a discussion about the experience of emptiness. Culadasa explains the nature of consciousness, the conceptual imputations that the mind makes, and the cessation of those conceptions and removal of obstacles to “seeing” emptiness that is always, already present – uncovering what already is rather than gaining or having an experience. The four noble truths are discussed within the context of this discussion. Last, Culadasa explains why its necessary to repeat this experience and by doing so how it allows the mind to reorganize itself. Comments are closed.
