Tricycle Retreats: The Eight Worldly Concerns

Tricycle Retreats: The Eight Worldly Concerns
Today we begin Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo's Tricycle Retreat. A renowned nun in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Jetsunma will lead us on a study of the Eight Worldly Concerns—which we might also call the eight anxieties or "hang-ups." Jetsunma lists them as gain and loss, praise and blame, good reputation and bad reputation, and pleasure and pain. Overcoming our anxieties about these worldly concerns liberates tremendous amounts of energy for finding our true purpose in life, and our innate perfection.
