The Burning House

by Satyalila (2019)

Starting from the Parable of the Burning House, this talk expands out to explore the Buddha's own perspective on how the world is burning, from the Fire Sermon.

Speaking from a personal perspective of experience of burn out, Satyalila asks how can we best respond to the suffering we find in the world today and resource ourselves to do this? How can we be 'in the world but not of it', be part of the solution, not contributing to the craving, aversion and delusion which are at the root of it all.

Concluding with six practical suggestions from Vessantara including guarding the mind, dealing with social media, entrusting to deeper forces and the ultimate solution to overwhelm.

This talk is part of the series Responding to the Burning World.
