Mind, Emotion, and Anger:

Meeting the Enemy with Wisdom and Equanimity

 

DHARMA TALK WITH VENERABLE BHIKSHUNI THUBTEN SAMTEN

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 7-9PM

Anger plagues all of us on a personal, national, and international level. Yet, we see people, such as the Dalai Lama, who have faced circumstances far worse than many of us have faced—including exile, persecution, and the loss of many loved ones—but who do not burn with rage or seek revenge, how do they do it? Join us for a Dharma talk with Venerable Bhikshuni Thubten Samten of Sravasti Abbey! With wit, humor, and enthusiasm, Venerable Samten will work with us on developing the best tools for navigating difficult situations in the world and within ourselves.

ABOUT THE TEACHER

Venerable Samten met Venerable Thubten Chodron in 1996 when the future Venerable Thubten Chonyi, took the future Venerable Samten to a Dharma talk at Dharma Friendship Foundation in Seattle. The talk on the kindness of others and the way it was presented is deeply etched in her mind. Four Cloud Mountain retreats with Ven. Chodron, eight months in India and Nepal studying the Dharma, one month of offering service at Sravasti Abbey, and a two-month retreat at the Abbey in 1998 fueled the fire to ordain on August 26, 2010. Ven. Samten’s full ordination took place in Taiwan in March 2012 when she became the Abbey’s sixth bhikshuni.
