Freedom from the Eight Worldly Concerns
Sundays, 10am – 11:30am
with Kadam Amy Peng and Michael Racadio
The objects of the eight worldly concerns are happiness and suffering, wealth and poverty, praise and criticism, and good reputation and bad reputation. These eight worldly concerns are called `worldly concerns’ because worldly people are constantly concerned with them, wanting some and trying to avoid others which leads to worries, fear and anxieties.
By learning to let go of these worldly concerns and cultivating the real source of happiness, wealth and good reputation, we can begin to live a happy and joyful life free from worries and anxiety.
