Great Compassion

Reflections on how to approach the development of insight meditation, vipasanna, like a spiritual athlete with comparisons to the rigorous training of bhikkhunis. It requires strong determination and hard work to beat a path to awakening. But if you can bear with the difficulties, you will learn to manage the mind and see clearly what is happening as it happens – a key to awakened awareness and freedom.  A talk given at an Ottawa Buddhist Society 10 day retreat at the Sisters of St. Joseph Convent, Pembroke, Canada in 2008.
