About the Topic:
Lots of people come to Buddhist meditation looking to let go of negative qualities of mind. But few seek to understand or let go of desire itself. Yet desire is the cause of suffering in the Buddhist cosmology. That is, until you get to Mahayana Buddhism, which seems to postulate a ‘greater’ desire.
Whatever your school of Buddhis, or angle of meditation, you will not go far before you come across this sticky topic.
About the Speaker:
Pandit Bhikkhu has been organising dharma events in Bangkok via the little Bangkok Sangha meditation group. Ordained as a Buddhist Bhikkhu since 1996, he resides in Bangkok, and holds a degree in Buddhist Studies and Psychology. The talk will be delivered in a clear and comprehensible style.
