Diana talks about how to develop resilience in the face of difficulties. By practicing noticing one’s thoughts and emotions, starting with the easier and gradually moving toward the more difficult can be a compassionate and skillful way to develop strength. She talks about how this resilience creates the conditions that can allow one to help others as well as oneself.

Diana Clark gave the second talk in a seven-week series on lesser known Buddhist teachings titled "Thus Have I Heard." This talk emphasizes the importance of good spiritual friends in preparing our minds for liberation. Given this importance, there are four ways to sustain a good relationship: generosity, endearing speech, beneficial actions, and viewing others without bias or prejudice.

The Pali Canon includes over 5,000 discourses that document conversations and encounters that occurred during forty years of the Buddha's ministry. Over the centuries, certain teachings have risen to the surface with popularity and come to characterize our impression of what the Buddha taught. However, the vast collection of source material reaches beyond these well known teachings. For this speaker series, IMSB has invited teachers to focus on teachings that have been largely neglected by contemporary Buddhist groups. Each talk will share a lesser-known teaching, event, or instruction that will enrich our comprehension of what the Buddha taught. We will discover whether broadening our source material reinforces the dominant view of Buddhist practice or paints a different picture of meditation and the path of liberation.
