In the stroke of a paintbrush
In the soothing sway of a weeping willow branch
The way the full moonlight kisses dark bay waters
(by Jenna Sundell (Isis)) Running a meditation hall is one certain way to tune up your practice. If you don’t rely on your practice each and every day, it will surely drive you nuts. I’ve been running Dharma Center as a labor of love for nearly 16 years. There’s no way I could do it alone.
(by Chinjandra) "I will come and go in this world and be forgotten. That's freedom.
But I do have a role to play in this cosmic game.
I may ease the suffering of another; I may give joy or I may die in the attempt.
But I must play my role be it great or small. That's humility."
Rama, Purity and Humility
(by Chinjandra; Kali) Two weekends ago, a few of us traveled to the Shambala Mountain Center in Colorado for the Lenz Foundation conference with Foundation grantees and their collaboration partners. At Shambhala, we enjoyed the power of the land, the open meadows, the crisp mountain air, a vibrant and beautiful Stupa and the company of Buddhist monks from multiple lineages living in America.

(by Chinjandra) According to Lao-Tzu, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
