Tonight I attended ceremonial chanting with Bhagavan Das at Kashi Atlanta. Friends were there and it was a 3 + hour evening of , for me, bliss. ” Desire, lust, anger, and stupidity” are the causes of suffering. We must face and embrace death symbolically and literally to achieve awareness and freedom from these four major causes of suffering in this life. He stressed that while we are in the privilege of bodily form that we awaken and be aware and try to be here *now*… This is the path to freedom …(and ultimately enlightenment.)
