Ken McLeod continues his commentary on the 37 Practices of the Bodhisattva with the 19th verse. Watch the other videos here.

Even when you are famous, honored by all,
And as rich as the god of wealth himself,
Don’t be pompous. Know that the magnificence of existence
Has no substance — this is the practice of a bodhisattva.

What do you feel in your body when you experience success? Have there been times when  success has been harder to bear than failure?
