Joseph Goldstein – Insight Hour – Ep. 11 – The Art of Renunciation


An enlightening discourse on the often confounding subject of renunciation, and the ways in which we might find value in this practice.

Joseph draws on initial inquiries from the Buddha in determining the drawbacks of pleasure seeking-behavior in relation to the potential benefits of what he calls the ‘non-addictive’ state. Understanding the roots of our thoughts and desire systems is the first step in bringing greater awareness to our actions and the karma that unfolds therein.

“The mind free of desire is a greater pleasure.”
