I See You, Mara

This month and next month we are learning about the two wisdom aspects of the Eightfold Path, right view and right intention. Understanding and applying right view and right intention in our practice can be challenging, but it is often equally challenging to recognize when wrong view and wrong intention are present. Before we know it, we are caught up in some problem with our life or practice that might not even exist if confusion and delusion were not present. The Buddha was able to overcome these forces of delusion by recognizing them, saying “I see you, Mara.” This talk explores our ability to follow his example and do the same when confusion and delusion arise in our minds.
