BITESIZE | A Monk’s Guide To Happiness & How To Thrive in Hard Times | Gelong Thubten

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  June 7, 2024

What if the most courageous, compassionate thing you could do in life, was to learn how to be with yourself?

Today’s clip is from episode 387 of the podcast with Buddhist monk, meditation teacher and author of ‘A Handbook for Hard Times: A Monk’s Guide to Fearless Living’ , Gelong Thubten.

In this clip he explains that when we distract ourselves by scrolling, overeating, or drinking for example, we’re pushing away emotional pain or discomfort – even if we may not realise it. But the discomfort is really in the pushing. If we can learn instead to sit with what’s making us uncomfortable, those emotions start to transform.
