Tom Jobim used to say "Brazil is not for beginners". Manjupriya attests to this in the best of ways, describing frankly what it's like to change culture and learn the long lessons of experience away from all you know. We discuss the lifelines of mindfulness training and of Skype; the loneliness and togetherness of a Buddhist Order; the "martial art of the heart" that is the cultivation of kindness towards our enemies; and the great project of awakening to profound compassion in your life, meeting all disappointment with forgiveness and with love.
The first of our Friday excursions further afield as part of this series of podcasts designed to keep you in touch with a sense of community and with your own delight as we navigate uncertain times together.
Check out our Dharma Toolkit space for details of all we have on offer to help you make it through the weirdness and stay inspired.
Come meditate with us any week day!
