Noble Eightfold Path, Talk 7: Right Effort

Right Effort – The 6th Spoke on the Wheel of Dharma

In his teachings about 'how' we should go about investigating the nature of our minds and hearts, the Buddha continually emphasized the words diligent, ardent, and resolute. If we want to experience more joy and freedom in our lives, we need to apply a more sustained and wise effort to our practice in order to discover more clarity - or insight - into which mind states lead us to happiness, and which ones lead us towards more suffering. During this talk, Shell dives into what this “wise effort” looks like in more detail."
