"Managing Oneself - Vipassana, Work & Social Action" from Realizing Change Monday, February 1, 2016 Political, social and economic problems have always existed but with today’s almost instant communications, we can see just how widespread these are: the frightened refugees vowing revenge, another tainted food scare, the latest corruption scandal. Why even now, we may ask, do these same patterns keep recurring? Why have world organizations like the U.N. and individual governments not been able to deal effectively with problems such as communal tension, poverty, unemployment and abuse of power? Do we ever learn? In this month’s Dhamma podcast, Managing Oneself - Vipassana, Work & Social Action, we focus on how Vipassana offers an alternative approach to solving these problems and the untold misery they cause. Know-how and resources are certainly necessary but above all wisdom is required. Listen to how people from various professions and backgrounds apply the beneﬁts of vipassana in practical ways to tackle these global problems. 10 - Managing Oneself - Vipassana, Work & Social Action as read by Ian Hetherington recorded 2014/2015 74 minutes Listen to Audio Download Audio (72 MB) Realizing Change: Copyright, 2016 Pariyatti There is more information about vipassana meditation at Dhamma.org, and books and audio resources available for purchase in the Pariyatti bookstore.
