Dear friends,
 
Today we share the Question and Answer session from the Holiday Retreat at Deer Park Monastery. Brother Phap De leads the group of monastics and lay friends in exploring questions about our practice. Looking deeply, we see how the practice can permeate all aspects of our lives and guide us to greater peace.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk given by Brother Phap Ho on the first day of this new year. The theme of the talk is virtue, which our brother frames as "the act of living up to one's potential." He shares specifically on The Three Virtues: cutting through afflictions, love, and insight. May you be inspired to cultivate these virtues in 2015 and reach your true potential.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast.  Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Today we share with you a dharma talk given by Brother Phap Hai at the end of 2014. He shares with us the sutra, The Fruits of the Contemplative Life. Our brother encourages us to pause and consider the nature of our own contemplative life. There is Dharma to experience in every moment and a unique path of practice for every practitioner.

**We are trying different options: posting podcasts on Saturday and also posting the whole one-hour podcast rather than 30 minute parts.  What do you think?**

Dear friends,
 
Today, we continue Sister Mai Nghiem's talk on our inner hungry ghost. Our sister shares on the beauty of taking refuge and accepting things as they are: our community before it is perfect, the Buddha in us with the hungry ghost in us, the lotus and the mud.

Dear friends,
 
Today, we offer dharma jewels from another sister new to Deer Park, Sister Mai Nghiem.  Our sister introduces us to our "hungry ghost," which is the energy of craving in us. By understanding the suffering of our hungry ghost, we can take better care of the here and now.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
We're happy to introduce a new member of the four-fold sangha at Deer Park Monastery on the podcast this week, Sister Dieu Nghiem, also known as Sister Jina. She gives this talk just before Thanksgiving and leads a guided meditation on awareness and gratefulness of the cells in our body. Joining her in mindfulness, we can remember that one breath is enough to bring us back to our true home.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
By request of a fellow Dharmacast listener, this week, we offer a talk by Venerable Thich Phuoc Tinh given at the beginning of the Winter Retreat. In his signature energetic and fast-paced style, the Venerable reminds us that every moment in meditation is a moment in the presence of Thay and the Buddha. That Buddhism is not a philosophy to be intellectually debated, but rather a very clear and simple practice. 
 
The Dharmacast team loves to hear from our listeners. If you have feedback on past podcasts or requests for upcoming podcasts, let us know by email. But for now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
 
We hope that your holiday has been restful and nourishing. Have you had a chance to stop and return to your breath? This week we invite you to join Brother Phap Ho in a session of guided sitting and movement meditation. Our brother gently reminds us that every moment is an opportunity to quiet our thinking and experience our breath in the body.
 
With Thay peacefully healing in the hospital, we have the chance to support his continuation through the building of the Deer Park Nunnery. The four-fold sangha continues to raise funds to build environmentally sustainable straw bale housing for the sisters and a hut for Thay. See deerparknunnery.org for updates on the construction and how to donate. Most recent updates on Thay's health can be found at plumvillage.org.
 
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast on Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter. We welcome dharma sharings from our worldwide listeners on any of our online homes or by email. Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,

 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week, we present insight from our monastic brothers and sisters at Deer Park Monastery on the art of suffering.  During a question and answer session, retreatants ask how to best practice with suffering in our families and at work. When difficulties manifest in the world around us, we can remember to take refuge in the Dharma, the sangha, and the Buddha nature in ourselves and others.
 
With our teacher still recovering in the hospital, we have the opportunity to deeply practice his teachings. The most recent official announcements on Thay's health can be found at plumvillage.org.
