Renunciation (Nekkhamma) or “letting go” is an important aspect of the Buddhist practice. This involves taking a closer look at one’s own cravings and discerning what is really necessary and beneficial. In this talk, Simon Neale will explain what renunciation means in the Buddhist context, how it benefits one’s practice and how to apply it to our own lives. This session will also include a guided meditation. This talk is part of the “Graduated Path to Awakening” talk series given by Simon Neale.

Simon has been a meditator for over 30 years, and he is also an excellent teacher who kindly gave many valuable teachings in our past events. Sadly, Simon will be leaving Cambridge soon, and this Saturday’s talk will be the last chance to listen to him while he is here.

This talk is part of the Buddhist Society Talks series.
