Public lecture By LAma Jigmé Namgyal: Finding stability in times of change
This evening Lama Jigmé will talk about how to find stability in times of change.
If we are attentive to our own experience, we will see that everything is constantly changing: this holds true not only for the outer world, including the economic and political realities that shape society but also for our friends and family, and also for our emotions. Although we may not always realize this, sometimes change can be for the best. If we try to artificially stop change, we cause more suffering, because we are resisting the very nature of reality. The point is to learn to influence the causes and conditions that bring about both suffering and happiness, and to find inner stability in the midst of change.
