The Objectification Conundrum

Ajahn Kaccana

Ajahn Kaccāna spells out the necessity of living in a world that consists of objects, but explains how this objectification can be held in a detached and skillful manner. He recounts an experience in his own past in which he held on tightly and suffered as a result, and relates two humorous examples in the life of Luang Por Liem, when Luang Por manifested a wise and skillful equanimity.
