The best way to understand what samsara feels like might be to reflect upon our addictions. Compulsive behavior can take many forms: eating, shopping, or cultivating thought patterns. Even going to the gym can be addictive, as we sometimes turn ordinarily healthy habits into self-destructive obsessions. This Tricycle e-book offers Buddhist wisdom and advice from over a dozen teachers on addiction and recovery.
