This Sunday at Alameda Sangha, November 18, 2012: Balancing the Fetter of Delusion with Wisdom

Hello Everyone,

Hoping that everyone is able to consider the practice of Equanimity or Upekkha as the holiday closely approaches. Deep breaths and relax one's posture!

This Sunday I will be offering how to balance the fetter of delusion, (which is the last in the list of the Three Poisons) with wisdom or panna. This is the last talk in the series of 7 which I introduced with the Six Sense Spheres. There will be a quick overview of the teachings on the Six Sense Spheres (the talks I gave are available on line if any would like to listen to them before this Sunday or sometime in the future) and how to work with the most common three fetters that cause us suffering: Greed, Hatred and Delusion.

Then, we will look at how to recognize delusion as it presents itself in our daily lives, because when we are deluded, how would we know that we are? Finally, we will explore ways to cultivate wisdom in order to transform and dispel delusion. Hoping that you will join me in this fruitful exploration and practice.


The nuns from Aloka Vihara in San Francisco will be visiting us on Sunday, December 2. We will be requesting them to give us a dharma talk on that evening. Please click on the link below if you would like to learn more about them and what they do and offer in their San Francisco digs.

with metta for your practice, Pauletta
