Cultivating Wisdom, Transforming Mano
In this talk given at Stonehill College during the 2009 U.S. Tour, Thay shares on three themes: the beauty and importance of the sangha; transforming mano; and the 16 Exercises of Mindful Breathing.
Beginning with a teaching for the children on the wonders of the true sangha, Thay shares the value of sangha building and how the sangha can bring joy, peace and hope to our society.
In the second part of the dharma talk, Thay teaches about the relationship of mind consciousness and store consciousness to mano. Characterized by attachment, clinging and delusion, mano manifests in six ways: seeking pleasure; avoiding suffering; ignoring the dangers of seeking pleasure; ignoring the goodness of suffering; ignoring the law of moderation; and always trying to own and possess. His teachings show us how to use mind consciousness and meditation to transform mano and relieve our suffering.
In the final portion of his talk, Thay introduces the 16 Exercises of Mindful Breathing and how they apply to the four realms of Body, Feeling, Mind and Object of Mind. He uses many of his classic stories to illuminate teachings on happiness, impermanence, the wisdom of non-discrimination, and the true nature of birth and death.
