Raghu Markus – Mindrolling – Ep. 480 – Living Kindness with Kevin Griffin

Buddhist teacher and author Kevin Griffin sits down with Raghu Markus to discuss finding a higher power and responding to everything with love.

“The Dharma can be your higher power rather than praying to some sort of Abrahamic God. The Dharma itself is powerful and provides all you need for turning your life over to the Dharma.” – Kevin Griffin

In this episode Kevin Griffin and Raghu explore:

  • A Buddhist path to recovery 
  • How practicality can lead to spirituality 
  • Dharma as a higher power
  • Initial transformation in the 12-step program 
  • Applying a metta practice to our daily lives
  • How we can bring balance into our inner world
