James Baraz: 2019-05-02 Internally & Externally - Holding It All 61:49

On the recent retreat James sat with Ven. Analayo, the monastic started out the last day's teaching saying: “This morning I want to talk about climate change. Though some say this is not an appropriate topic for the Dharma Hall, in my view and in light of the crisis we are facing, there is no more appropriate or necessary topic.” We explore how Dharma principles can help each of us individually hold this unsettling situation as well as why they are the key to us waking up as a species.
James quotes Bhikkhu Analayo's analysis of different reactions to the climate issue in terms of the three defilements: greed, hatred, and delusion, and shows how these attitudes can be transformed to a more positive approach.
