Ken McLeod continues his commentary on the 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva with the 24th verse. Watch the other videos here.

 

24
All forms of suffering are like dreaming that your child has died.
Taking confusion as real wears you out.
When you run into misfortune,
Look at it as confusion — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

 

We can’t disown our own experiences, and yet we continually do so.
