    We live in a world where we are bombarded all day long by sights, sounds, smells, tastes, feelings and opinions vying for our attention.  How can we settle our minds on the the great matter of liberation from suffering in the cycle birth and death?   This week we will look to the Buddha’s teachings on Right Concentration, the eighth aspect of the Eightfold Path, for guidance on how to focus the mind, free from doubt and distraction.
