About the Event

Buddhism teaches a life of non-attachment. The opposite of non-attachment, is “attachment,” which leads to many problems in life. If we become attached to money, we become greedy and selfish, and will never be satisfied, no matter how wealthy we might become. We can become attached to relationships. When our children grow up, we have to let them go into the world and live their life. I remember when we took my daughter off to college. They had an orientation for the parents. They told us, “Please do not call your child every day after they start college.” I thought, some parents call their kids every day when they go off to college? When we lose a loved one through death, at some point we have to let go. We cannot remain in grief forever. We can become attached to the future. What will happen if they don’t find a cure for the virus? What will happen if the economy doesn’t come back? We can become attached to the past. We think, “I am never ever going to forgive so and so for what they did to me.” But, if we stop and think about it, who is the one who suffers when we hold on to bitterness about the past? We are the one who suffers.
