Five Hindrances (Talk 3 of 4) – Sloth and Torpor – 2007 Series

By: Zoketsu Norman Fischer | 08/16/2007
Location: Community Congregational Church in Tiburon
In Topics: Pali Canon

Referencing Ayya Khema’s book “Being Nobody, Going Nowhere,” this talk overviews the Five Hindrances. The Five Hindrances are emotional coverings. The mind and heart are naturally peaceful and open, but through karma and habit and living, this brightness gets covered over.  Continued discussion on anger referencing Gil Fronsdale’s book The Issue at Hand, followed by a discussion of sloth and torpor.
