“Do Otherwise”

Sallie Jiko Tisdale

Sallie Jiko Tisdale

People are sometimes surprised to learn that Buddhism has a long, rich history of confession and repentance. The flavor of this in Buddhism is quite different from what we may have experienced in other religious practices, but we still experience shame, self-hatred and regret as we face up to past mistakes. Dharma Rain will be changing its way of engaging with “Fusatsu,” or repentance, in this coming year. This talk will explore the experience of confession and its meaning in Buddhist practice.

This talk was given Sunday, October 2, 2016.
