6/8/2014 – Verified Faith

Payton lead our reflections on the aspect of Saddhā, usually translated as Faith, Trust, or Confidence. There are many kinds of Faith in Buddhist practice, but we explored the concept of “borrowing faith” and verifying it for yourself as discussed in a talk by Andrea Fella.

The Pali term is literally, “to place one’s heart upon”. This is a good metaphor for the open-minded quality needed to be able to “run the experiment” (to use Andrea’s words) of dharma practice.

The talk is here:
