Defilements everywhere

| Czech Retreat 2013 Concluding Talk (9:53-10:47)

Every day you take a hot shower – but with which mind, you don’t know.

You think you’re mindful, but there is attachment there, right? The attachment continues to arise every time you take a hot shower.

Defilements can happen anywhere. Defilements have a chance to arise at any of the 6 sense doors. If defilement is not getting weaker, then wisdom cannot grow.

So, you need to practice awareness all the time, as much as you can – then, the mind pattern can slowly change.
