Seven Freedom Lights

The Buddha gave us seven factors of enlightenment to brighten and polish the mind. Three of these factors are dynamic – they are the spiritual skills that help us to remove obstacles, make the path smooth, and allow us to practice forgiveness and compassion.  These in turn give rise to the four brightening enlightenment factors which wash out the defilements and enable us to move towards freedom. A talk given at Sati Saraniya Hermitage in 2015.
