“Confession is Good for the Soul.”

“Confession is Good for the Soul.”

Even though Buddha didn’t teach the existence of a soul, this common English slogan has some meaning for Buddhists. Meditation, reflection and self-awareness can lead to changes in our lives, but only if we are willing to be honest with ourselves about our day-to-day motivations, thoughts, words and actions. This talk speaks to the Buddhist practice of daily reflection and how it can be a force for change in our minds and lives.
