8-28-22 Daniele Bollini: Peace, War, and Meditation in Italian

Shambhala Sunday Gathering Podcast

Nov 21 2022 • 1 hr 4 mins

In this dark period where big and forgotten wars plague this world, we practice Shamatha meditation, which means dwelling in peace. This is often not the first experience in sitting on the cushion. Actually the opposite might happen: we experience unsettledness, distress and anxiety and we tend to wage war with our mind itself. So, what is the relationship between peace and personal little inner wars and collective outer big wars? How does meditation work with both pace and war? The answer is somewhat counterintuitive and has to do with making peace with war instead of against war.
