A contemplation of the mind with its equal capacity for profound distress and profound wakefulness.
Jata Sutta: The Tangle
A tangle within,
a tangle without,
people are entangled in a tangle.
Gotama, I ask you this: who can untangle this tangle?
A person established in integrity,
developing discernment and mindfulness
ardent and clear, they can untangle this tangle.
passions, aversions, and ignorance
have faded away,
for them the tangle's untangled.
To read "The Tangle" sutta text that Christina quotes in this first talk, please see the overview page for this series.
This session was devoted to questions and answers, but also includes additional teaching. (Note: The spoken questions from the sangha were cut from the recording as they were difficult to hear. Christina repeats the questions before she answers.)
