Ajahn Brahmali Dhamma Talk: “Equanimity vs. Passivity”

Equanimity is a profound quality and its near enemy is passivity. How do we recognise we have fallen into this dangerous deviation and overcome it? How can we know when to act and when to stand back and let go?


Drawing on the word of the Buddha, Ajahn Brahmali will delve into the true meaning of equanimity as an accepting and expansive state of mind developed in meditation. Together we will explore how we can discern the difference between wise, balanced action coming from an even mind, and passive resignation.
