What does it mean to live a good life? John D. Dunne opens with this question as an invitation into understanding that the concept of a good life is bundled into walking the Awakened path. We explore the nuance of balancing our motivation to wake up with the natural temptation to fixate on an end goal.
John lays some of the groundwork for our course, touching on the Path of the Bodhisattva, the two truths, formal and informal practice, and the root causes of our suffering. We close this episode with a meditation practice of falling away.
Attached is a PDF with the chants with which John opens and closes each day.
