This week, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo teaches on Gain and Loss (everyone wants the former, nobody, the latter), two of the "Eight Worldly Concerns." Plenty of discussion follows.
One participant writes,
Your teachings are so clear and understandable to me. Thank you so very much for them! I suffer the most from my anticipation of loss...particularly the loss of my partner/spouse who is 14 yrs. older than I am. I know cognitively that what I am doing is causing me great suffering. I know I "ought" to let go of the anticipatory fear of losing her, but it's the continuous turning of the wheel of suffering anyhow. Is there a secret practice in the "how to" of letting go? I guess I would like to know how you worked with attachment/aversion on your own path. Thank you Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo.
