Venerable Hasapanna responds to the question “how do you really let go of someone in your life?” Venerable reflects on what letting go means and how we have to train our mind to let go by developing wisdom, because the reason we attach and hold on to things is due to lack of wisdom. Venerable ponders where is the source of the suffering? Where does the attachment come from? What are we letting go of? Is the object of our attachment the source of our happiness and suffering?
