The beauty of letting go. Why it’s so good, if you’re rich, to give wealth away; why psychological interpretations of letting go are the favorite Dharma of the privileged, and what letting go might mean for the already poor; and why it isn’t necessarily good practice to turn renunciation into a metaphor (or something only monastics do).
This is the last topic in our series of foundational teachings, which I’ll flesh out for the next couple weeks. [Note: I didn’t really get through with renunciation in one talk, and have a couple weeks before our March-April series on Satipaṭṭhāna meditation starts, so I expect we’ll keep going with this topic for a week or two.]
