Awakening With Dispassion

by Peter Carlson on April 9, 2015

This talk was recorded on April 8, 2015, and is the follow-up on the talk entitled “Anapanasati And Anicca April 1 2015.  During this talk, Peter described how mindfulness of the arising and passing away of mental fabrications leads naturally to a sense of decreased “energy” or “thirst” regarding craving and clinging.  Peter also emphasized how important samadhi/passadhi (concentration/tranquility) are to “draining away:” the potency of craving.  This was followed by a lively discussion of how to cultivate dispassion.  During next week’s talk, the topic of cessation will be explored as part of the Fourth Tetrad of the Anapanasati Sutta.
