Ken McLeod continues his commentary on the 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva with the 23rd verse. Watch the other videos here.

 

23

Though beautiful to experience, like a summer rainbow,
Don’t take it as real.
Let go of attachment—this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

 

Letting go is one of our greatest challenges. Are you able to open up to not-holding?
