Ep.14 A monk on wisdom, kindness and an untamed mind w/Markus Getzner
Show Notes

What is an untamed mind? And why should we make it a priority to tame it?  How can we experience more joy and even bliss in our lives? What is the difference between wisdom and intelligence? Can we find meaning and purpose in suffering? Are Buddhist practices about quieting one’s mind? What is the difference between love and attachment, and why should we seek to remove the latter?

These are some of the questions we cover today with Austrian monk Markus Getzner, who has spent the past 30 years of his life as a practicing monk at a Tibetan monastery in Switzerland.
