In celebration of Padmasambhava, a series of short talks were given on the theme of "Taming the Demons of the Modern World."
Choice is something we all have - we have the choice to act the way we act, the choice in the way we live our lives, which is very positive. The Demon of Choice is more about consumerism which can alienate us from our deeper selves. This type of choice keeps us in a superficial state of alienation preventing us from asking deeper questions such as what gives our lives meaning? Transforming the Demon of Choice involves overcoming doubt, the practice of renunciation, and living simply.
Talk given at the Cambridge Buddhist Centre, October 2010.
