Feel Free to Waste My Valuable Time | Bhante Mudito | 24 May 2020

September 26, 2021

In his last talk for some time at NBM, Bhante Mudito reflects on how we use our time: skillful practices (gratitude, kindness, service) vs unskillful (anger, lazy habits). Drawing on experiences from his younger days, and from the last two years at Newbury, he illustrates how cultivating certain actions and attitudes can have a beneficial effect, even during difficult and challenging times.
