"Dealing with Frustration"

Meditation & Buddhism | Self Improvement | Personal Growth | Motivation

In this episode, Dassetu explores a common emotion that many of us experience on a regular basis: frustration. Frustration comes from non-acceptance and our ‘grasping’ at our expectations. It comes from not wanting things to be a certain way and being unable to accept things the way they are. But, as we’ll see, frustration is not an inherent part of our mind and is something we can reduce and remove altogether. The Buddha offered a range of simple methods to calm ourselves and let go of our frustrations so that we’re not so irritated and angry throughout the day, and to help us transform our minds completely.

David Johnson (Dassetu)

David (also known as Dassetu, a Pali term simply meaning ‘one who points out or shows’) is an experienced contemplative, meditator & meditation guide who has studied the mind, meditation, and Buddhism for several years. He is the Founder of Samadhi. In his own practise and teachings, David focusses on the core themes of Early Buddhism and emphasises the practices of Shamatha (meditative quiescence), and it’s union with Vipassana on the Four Applications of Mindfulness and the Four Immeasurables – which presents a direct path leading to the realisation of our deepest nature and the potentials of consciousness, and closely follows how the Buddha himself attained enlightenment. He considers himself to be the fortunate student of many teachers, including his root lama, Lama Alan Wallace, Drub-la Tsampa Karma, H.E. Garchen Rinpoche, Gyatrul Rinpoche, Chamtrul Rinpoche, and Zopa Rinpoche, Dhammachariya Paññadipa (Michael Kewley) and Bhikkhu Kakmuk
