Awakening Does not Jibe with Jealousy
Download Transcript It has been edited for clarity.
We all know what the Buddha said about anger. But what did he say about jealousy and envy? These two complex emotions are simultaneously ubiquitous and invisible: they frequently visit us, but we are loath to admit to feeling them. Who better than the Venerable Thubten Chodron, a longtime Tibetan Buddhist nun, to help ease us out of shame and into recognition with her characteristic warmth and humor? Offering more than mere sympathy, she shows us how jealousy and envy quietly feed off our attachments and how we can ultimately overcome them.
