Greed Is Good ~ Is That Really True? | Ajahn Nissarano

July 26, 2020

A Dhamma talk given at the Buddhist Society of Victoria (BSV) by Ajahn Nissarano. Believed to be given around November 2019.

Ajahn Nissarano talks about greed, viewed from a Buddhist perspective. Greed in Buddhism isn't just about wanting things in excess, but it's any degree of wanting or attraction towards something. Ajahn discusses ways to abandon greed, through contentment, thankfulness, and knowing the disadvantages of the things we are greedy for.
