Dhammananda Bhikkhuni talking at a TEDx talk given in Chiang Mai in which she talks about gaining power through connection with our roots.
In her case this means connecting with her lineage root, Ven. Mahapajapati Gotami; and her Mother Voramai Kabilsingh, who was the first Thai woman to take higher ordination.
She also talks about our physical roots in the elements, and the interconnectivity that gives us to everyone else.
The talk is full of good advice about living in a positive and useful way, by using skilful means to put aside the burden of negativity.
