In this episode of the Maitripa College Podcast, Yangsi Rinpoche leads us on a deep dive into understanding equanimity practice as it relates to generating compassion and bodhicitta. Is it easier to practice equanimity with strangers, or with our closest loved ones? Through a close look at the play of attachment, desire, and expectation, Rinpoche engages the Seattle Dharma Friendship Foundation Community in dialogue on the way we actually relate to equanimity, and a way to skillfully approach the practice of compassion and equanimity in our daily lives.
