Wisdom: Desire & Mindfulness

Sharing Wisdom

October, 2009

Venerable Bhikkhuni Kusuma describes the process of using mindfulness to overcome thoughts and feelings of desire until we have the ability to overcome them altogether.

The Fourth Bi-Annual Meeting of the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders met in Haifa and Galillee, from Oct. 18-22, 2009. The meeting was devoted to the theme “The Future of Religious Leadership”. It explored what it means to be a religious leader, in all participating religions, what challenges religious leaders face today and how religious leaders should be trained. In this context, the Fetzer Institute and the Elijah Interfaith Institute filmed religious leaders further exploring the concepts of forgiveness, compassion, love, humility and mindfulness.
