"Hope is the experience of accepting radical uncertainty." - Roshi Joan Halifax
Freedom is possible, even in the relative world.
Taking in the truth of what arises in our lives from the relative perspective - including grief, hatred, and disrespect - helps us to break apart the quality of defensiveness around our hearts allowing boundless unconditional love to emerge.
So how can we create the architecture where that possibility of finding freedom amidst discomfort can arise?
Through radical inclusivity, how can we foster the conditions that make it possible for all of us, especially those who are vulnerable, to be free and liberated?
After covering these questions, Roshi Joan facilitates a Q&A session surrounding death as the ultimate frontier, the three ways we experience life, and the idea of hastening death for those who are already dying - plus many other topics surrounding death and rebirth.
“You are a spiritual being delving into humanness.” - Ram Dass
The group begins by shedding light upon their Bhakti brother, Ramgiri, who is currently in the process of transitioning. Raghu uses Ramgiri’s poignant reflection of the inevitability of his own passing to bring forth a conversation on identity, soul and a deeper exploration of reality and freedom from suffering from a Bhakti and Buddhist perspective.
Robert Thurman dives into an exploration of the concept of “soul” within the Buddhist tradition, and discusses the idea of bliss and Nirvana relating to the Buddhist tradition.
The session ends with Ram Dass answering the question, "Do you love your body as it is?"
