Dear friends,

Today, we share a talk given by Brother Phap Tuyen and lovingly translated by Sister Tinh Nguyen. Our brother shares on the changing nature of our relationships with our fathers, from birth to adulthood. Whether our fathers are still with us or have passed on, let us reflect on what they have given us and what we, in turn, can continue to give to them.

Dear friends,

Today, we share with you the first talk from this year's People of Color Retreat. Sister Chau Nghiem shares the significance of People of Color retreats at Deer Park and the Plum Village tradition. She draws parallels between retreats and the Muslim month of Ramadan. When we go without, we are able to go more deeply within. Then, with Right Effort we can recognize and select which seeds to water in our consciousness. 
 
We're happy to have another summer love letter to share from a listener in our Dharmacast family:
 
Thank you for the Deer Park Dharmacasts. They are a precious gift and have helped me so much to cultivate mindfulness and take care of my suffering. 
 
I listen to them repeatedly and each time, I hear something new and learn something new. that's so nice. Examples are Thay Phap Hai's "Back to Basics" (part 1) and "Infusing our Practice with Bodhichitta"; I hear them "new" no matter how many times I listen, which is very often. 
 
with love and ongoing awakening,
 
Alice
NYC

Dear friends,

 
This week, we continue the talk from last week to discuss some of life's important questions.  Sister Quynh Nghiem brings us two questions: Who is the most important person? And what is the most important thing to do? Then Brother Phap Ho continues by helping us answer for ourselves: Where are we going?  As with all the questions we pose, let us ask with genuine curiosity and loving kindness. May your answers illuminate your path.

Dear friends,
 
Welcome the Deer Park Dharmacast. Dharma Flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
We're happy to kick of our Summer Love Letters project with a love note from our listener, Liesa.  These are her words of love:
 
The sound of the bell and the sound of the monastics' voices on the Dharmacast remind me of the lotus garden at Solidity Hamlet. It reminds me of the solidity I feel at Deer Park, and how that solidity supports my practice. 
 
If you would love to share a love note to the monastics of the Deer Park, you can reach us at our email or Facebook page.
 
This week's talk is given by Sister Quynh Nghiem at a recent retreat. She shares her own childhood experiences and observations of families around her. With mindfulness, she sees that true quality of life is not found through wealth or comfort but with time and peace of mind. She tells a story of a king who seeks answers to three questions, the first being, "What is the most important time?"  Tune in next week for the answers to the last two questions.

Dear friends,
 
In the last talk of the recent Wake Up retreat for young people, Sister Thuan Nghiem enourages retreatants to invest in their spiritual wealth.  In our modern world, young people are prepared in school to seek career success and material wealth. Our sister invites retreatants to seek a balance between spiritual and material wealth.  From simply returning to our breath to taking the opportunity of the Five-Year program, there are many ways to start our spiritual future now.
 
Lastly, the Dharmacast team would like to invite you to participate in our new project,Summer Love Letters.  The monastics have dedicated their lives to sharing the Dharma with you and it nourishes their practice to hear how their dedication has touched your life.  If a sharing on the podcast has touched you deeply, please write a love letter, a love note, or even just a love sentence to the monastics at Deer Park.  Send it to the Dharmacast and throughout the summer, we hope to share your love letter on the air to nourish the monastics at Deer Park and inspire other listeners in the worldwide Dharmacast sangha.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share the second half of a talk given by Brother Man Tue before the Five Mindfulness Trainings ceremony at Deer Park.  Our brother focuses on how our senses play an integral role in the Fourth and Fifth Mindfulness Trainings.  He encourages us to place our mindfulness between our senses and ourselves, as a way to protect us from fear, craving and anger.  May you walk your path this week protected and free.

Dear Friends,
 
Today we share the dharma talk given by Brother Man Tue at Deer Park Monastery two weeks ago.  He shares his experience of finding joy in mindfulness as a way to take refuge. When world events or events at home cause us suffering, we can nourish our own joy as a way to promote peace in the people around us and in the world.
