What's the Result of Letting Go? | Ajahn Dhammasiha | Dhamma Talk on Buddhism at Dhammagiri
Ajahn Dhammasiha points out how Luang Por Liem in his recent Dhamma talks interprets terms like 'Going Forth' ('Pabbajjā'), or 'Generosity/Giving' ('Cāga'), in a deeper, more profound sense.
Usually Pabbajjā means ordination as a novice, going forth from the houselife into homelessness. But Luang Por takes it deeper by suggesting the meaning of going forth, moving away from everything unwholesome, abandoning mental defilements.
Similar, he interprets 'Cāga' not just as giving something as an act of generosity, but suggests it means giving away, letting go of attachments, anger and craving.
This generates a question from the audience:
"What is the Result of Letting Go?"
