The Buddha taught that attachment is the cause of suffering. Hence many Buddhists believe that to be free from suffering we should detach from our relationships and possessions.
Is detachment the way of out of suffering as what the Buddha taught?
What is detachment?
In this talk, Rosie will share her understanding of detachment and try to clear some misunderstanding revolving this idea.
21st March (Tuesday) 7pm – 9pm
Rosiana is an accountant by profession and has been practising for more than a decade. And throughout her practice, she has been touched by the profundity of the Buddhist teaching. She was actively involved in the Buddhist community through her role as an English Dhamma Talk Coordinator. She likes to attend silent meditation retreats and believes it’s the conducive way to get in touch with her heart and to unveil the innate wisdom. She has attended a nine-day retreat with Ajahn Brahm and some weekend retreats with other senior teachers like Ajahn Dtun, Ajahn Viradhammo, Ariya Nani, and also some lay teachers.
All Sessions by Dana (Donation).
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs).
