When we are confronted with disease such as our current pandemic, we can react in a multitude of ways. We can respond with fear, panic, sadness, anxiety…or we can use this time to propel us into deeper gratitude and spiritual yearning.
The story of the Buddha began when Prince Siddhartha Gautama witnessed three things: an old man, a sick person, and a dead body. For the first time in his life he was exposed to the temporal nature of human life. Instead of responding to what he witnessed with fear, he let his experience transform him into the Buddha.
In this talk, we will briefly discuss how COVID-19 can be our modern 3 sights of the Buddha, and how our own teacher Master Choa Kok Sui understood impermanence and embodied this truth to spread Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga.
