Wed Mar 29: Verse 21 of Reflections on Silver River
What is your relationship like with desire and pleasure? How do you deal with cravings?
This week we will work through Verse 21 and its commentary in Reflections on Silver River, Ken McLeod’s translation of Tokmé Zongpo’s Thirty-seven Practices of a Bodhisattva.
Here’s Verse 21:
Sensual pleasures are like salty water:
The deeper you drink, the thirstier you become.
Any object you attach to,
Right away, let it go – this is the practice of a bodhisattva.
