The Buddha taught that there are five hindrances or obstacles to realizing enlightenment. These obstacles are commonly referred to in Buddhist teachings as “The Five Hindrances” of desire, aversion, disinterest, agitation, and indecision. These mental states are considered to be obstacles because they keep us from being mindful. Subscribe to the podcast on: iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/secular-buddhism/id1071578260...

If you’re familiar with the Kalama Sutta, you’re aware of the teaching to analyze things against your own experience and to be cautious about relying on external sources for authority.

I believe that when we learn to look past our own stories and narratives we have about ourselves, others,...
