Dharma Medicine for All Situations: The Three Fierce Mantras

FCM 2015 Spring Retreat:
Dharma Medicine for All Situations: The Three Fierce Mantras

Published on Apr 28, 2015

Our resistance to the unfolding of life, especially those situations unwanted or unexpected, is a primary cause of our emotional ups and downs. Our difficulty in accepting the experiences of life and the people in it for what they are and imposing our own needs and wants fuels an unending circus of negative emotions and conflictual mind states. Our desire to live peacefully in the present moment and practice mindful living becomes continually up-ended by our habitual dysfunctional responses.

In this three-day retreat, Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner and senior members of FCM led retreatants in the study and practice of "The Three Fierce Mantras":

“Whatever has to happen, let it happen!"
“Whatever the situation is, it’s fine!"
“I don’t need anything whatsoever!”

With the guidance of the Three Fierce Mantras, we can learn how to live a more emotionally sane life, with equanimity, ease, and wellbeing becoming more consistent mind states.
