Thanissaro Bhikkhu's Dharma Talks at Metta Forest Monastery
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
Dharma practice is medicine for the mind -- something particularly needed in a culture like ours that actively creates mental illness in training us to be busy producers and avid consumers. As individuals, we become healthier through our Dharma practice, which in turn helps bring sanity to our society at large.
2003-11-30 Outside The Box: Changing Your Mind 15:25
Your promise to yourself to follow the path and your willingness to look very, very carefully at events in the mind is what allows for growth in the practice. In spite of the teachings on impermanence, there are certain unskillful habits that can be dropped for good. (Date estimated) THBH_C9.02
