Facing Impermanence is the Direction Towards Freedom
In this session Vimalasara explores the second reminder – Impermanence and the inevitably of death. She penetrates into the nature of this truth, to help us face our suffering, as stated in the first step of the 8-step model. Accepting that this human life will bring suffering. We are born and we will die. And in-between we must learn to face whatever arises with kindness. Death of this moment, this thought, this meal, this kiss, this life, is inevitable. Suffering and Joy are optional. Learn to live the joyous life, by penetrating the teachings that point to the truth.
