Letting Go

Letting Go v.s. Giving Up v.s. Abandoning Hope

By "letting go", we mean casting off our attachments, not "giving up". We should face up to our problems, do our best to deal with them, then irrespective of success or failure, just let them go.

Application of Letting Go in Daily Life

Human beings always hope for increase. Real addition means that, while one may be gaining more fame, status, power, and wealth, one should also grow in merit, wisdom, and compassion. Otherwise, it is like taking more and more money out of a bank account, with the account balance getting smaller and smaller.
