Stay Tuned – Radiant Mind Untainted By Ego

We hear in the Udana, Verses of Uplift, about the Venerable Meghiya’s wish to practise in the beautiful Mango Grove before his mind was mature enough. Even when we are on retreat and conditions for practice seem perfect, hindrances plague the mind and overcome it with impurities. So we hold fast to the Buddha’s instructions to know for ourselves the radiance of mind that is untainted by ego. A talk given at a 10 day Ottawa Buddhist Society retreat in Pembroke, 2009.
