What makes life worthwhile? (video)
Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery, March 4th, 2018; Dhr. Seven, Crystal Q., Wisdom Quarterly
Bhikkhu Bodhi: What makes a life truly worthwhile?
Ven. Bodhi discusses Dhammapada Verses 110-115, which address the purpose of life from a Buddhist perspective. The verses mention moral restraint, meditation (mental cultivation), unification and coherence of mind (samadhi), insight, and wisdom. They compare a life of 100 years without these to the superiority of a life of one day with them. MP3 download of this talk available at: abhayagiri.org/talks/6887-what-makes-a-life-truly-worthwhile. This talk was offered on March 4, 2018 at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery in Northern California.
