Doomsday! | Ajahn Brahm

Feb 25, 2024   •   55 MIN
An online listener from the United States contacted Ajahn Brahm to ask about the many ways in which there are multiple ecological threats - like global warming, habitat and species loss - that could spell doom for humanity. What should we do about all these imminent threats to our existence? Ajahn Brahm points out that the belief that humanity is on the verge of annihilation has been around for a long time, and indeed many religions encourage such views. Ajahn Brahm looks back at the kind of mind that generates the fear and worry that causes us to believe that we are on the verge of doomsday, as well as how we can respond more positively. — This dhamma talk was originally recorded using a low quality MP3 to save on file size (because internet connections were slow back then – remember dialup?) on 28th May 2004.
