Mindful Consumption

Consumer Mentality | June 21, 2014

When we turn to spirituality, we may think that we’re leaving the corruption of the world behind. But our old ways of thinking do not disappear; they follow us, coloring the way we approach spiritual practice. Since we have all been raised to be good consumers—getting the most while paying the least—as dharma students and teachers we carry our consumer mentality right into our spiritual practice.

—Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron, “Shopping the Dharma”
