Right Intention
2008-07-01 Right Intention 40:30
Janet Taylor
The first division of the Noble Eightfold Path is wisdom, which consists of right view and right intention. This talk introduces right intention, which is the intention of renunciation, of non-harming, and of non-ill-will, and touches on the connection between intention and a sense of self. Intention determines whether our actions are wholesome or unwholesome and whether they lead toward or away from liberation. Time is also given to discussing what actions in our daily lives support right intention.
