Dharma Talk: The Joy of Letting Go - with James Baraz - Friday Oct. 11th at 6:30 pm at Tucson Osteopathic Medice Foundation (3182 N Swan Rd)
Just what does the phrase "let go" mean? Renunciation (nekkhama in Pali), one of the ten perfections, is often thought of as sacrifice, as something we should do because it's "good for us" though not particularly uplifting. Actually, the Buddha spoke of this quality as leading to true contentment and happiness.
During this talk, we will explore the theme of how renunciation is related to joy. We will discuss
• what letting go means,
• how letting go leads to simplicity and balance
• how letting go manifests as the perfection of generosity.
