Bodhinaga explores the fearless aspect of the Buddha Amoghasiddhi, looking at how we can apply this to transform anxiety in everyday life. He describes ways to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’ and shares a story of how the Buddha befriended a wild and fiery demon. Part 11 in the ‘Faces of Enlightenment’ Sangha night series at Sheffield Buddhist Centre.
Points for reflection and discussion:
Instead of living by worldly values, could committing to live by the five precepts give you solidity and calm?
Are there parts of yourself that you’re afraid to look at?
How does it feel to ask ‘What’s the best that could happen?’
