Krishna Das – Ep. 25 – Taking Refuge In The Name, Hanuman, And Acceptance

Taking Refuge

“What we need to find within us is that inner strength to turn towards the love within us . . . and Hanuman is the power to do that.” 

KD explains the process of taking refuge in practice through the letting go and returning to the repetition of the names. It is no small feat to dedicate time and energy toward the acknowledgment and betterment of our emotional states. Hanuman is discussed as an inspiration for turning away from our negative identifications and toward the true Love that lives within us. Acceptance is highlighted as a crucial step in the process of moving forward with our lives. We have to submit ourselves to the training if we want to see real change.
