Four Ways of Letting Go

May 28th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Filed under: Modern Life · Practice

In a difficult world there is no point making our journey heavier than it has to be. We hold onto things that weigh us down, and we do this needlessly.

So we know that letting go is the answer to everything, but this is not always easy. As with everything, we need tools to practice with. The Buddha taught four ways to let go, and Ajahn Brahm presents this teaching in a wonderfully engaging manner.

You don’t have to be a Buddhist to benefit from this teaching, everyone can understand it and put it into practice. As with so many things, of course, to be a practitioner of the Buddhist meditation technique will make it much easier to do.

and thanks to Colin in Singapore who posted this video. The feed from his site is in the sidebar to the right, Awakening the Buddha in Us. I don’t know him but I’ve long enjoyed what he posts to his site.

    It is very inspiring after listening to Ajahn Brahm’s video talks,
    Myself,I do respect All religions as long it promotes Kindness and Peace
    However, there’s these beliefs in Buddhism that there’s the cycle of reincarnation from humans to insects,animals things.. that ones has to goes through .. That I find amusing which ,sorry to comment, it is really hard to believes
    Ajahn Brahm’s ways of interpretation of Buddhism especially to the English educated is a open paths for a clearer understanding of the religions of Buddhism
    Thank you Ajahn Brahm
