Balancing Pleasure and Practice – The Peacock in the Poison Grove (from the Wheel of Sharp Weapons)
This lecture is based on The Wheel of Sharp Weapons, one of the most esteemed and celebrated Buddhist teachings, composed by the great Indian yogi Dharmarakshita (c. 10th Century). Although the title is intimidating, this teaching is really about the suffering that we cause ourselves in pursuit of selfish goals. But like the beautifal peacock who is able to eat poisonous plants, a true practitioner can turn the dangerous pleasures of this world into the tools of spiritual practice.
