Weekend Retreat Led by Ven Canda for Buddhist Insight, New York, USA: “Stopping The World With Contentment”
Address: 29 Ridgeway Ave, West Orange – NJ.
The Buddha said, “There is no way to end suffering without reaching the end of the world.” (AN 4.45) But how can we possibly reach the end of the world? Contentment helps us remain present to our experience as it unfolds, bringing the worlds of past and future to an end. Contentment settles the winds of wanting and douses the fires of ill will, the main hindrances to stillness and insight. As inner contentment deepens, the relentless search for pleasure in the sensual world gradually loses its meaning, and a taste of freedom becomes possible.
