Finding True Refuge is a web series from Tara Brach, designed to share people’s journeys into meditation and how it transformed their lives.
In the new video above, Ven. Pannavati Bhikkhuni explains that she came to meditation to change her combative attitudes. “In spiritual circles we like to talk about being a spiritual warrior but I was a straight-out street fighter. That’s really it. And I really wanted to change that behavior.” Although she had some doubts at first, sticking with her meditation practice helped her make that change.
