Hey everyone, a friend just reached out to me with the following question, and I thought, good idea! I wonder if we can crowdsource it, maybe y’all can contribute ideas? I’ll compile the answers when we have a good set.
As we are all aware, this Covid 19 pandemic has created much anxiety and fear among people, including members of our Buddhist community. I believe there are many suttas in the Pali Canon which can help us to emerge stronger and become more resilient in the face of such uncertainty. I think the key is how to be resilient and adapt to the changing scenario in this uncertain world now.
Can you suggest some suttas where I can make reference on resilience, developing inner strength, and our ability to adapt? If there are stories from the commentaries that would be of great help too. I would like to compile them together for ease of reference and understanding, and share them with others. Basically, we are sharing the formula for success even in a pandemic.
