In this talk, Vidyamala gives a strong account of working with suffering and sorrow in life, and of transforming her experience into one characterized by contentment and a sense of meaning.
From her own practice of living with chronic pain comes a sane and unsentimental perspective that affords us all a measure of genuine optimism as we meet the trials of the world: bereavements and losses of all kinds can be met with a kindness and awareness that gently ease the burden, allowing something of peace to enter our lives again.
