Dear friends,

In addition to the podcasts, which are usually offered as 30 minute sections of talks, we wanted to offer full length talks as requested by some Dharmacast listeners.

This is the second talk in a series of talks on the Eight Verses of Mind Training by Brother Phap Hai. This is the full talk for those who would prefer to listen to talks in their entirety.

The second talk on the Eight Verses is available here. To stream, click the link.  To download, right-click and select 'Save as.'

Enjoy!

Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk by Brother Phap Hai. He shares insights on our culture of consumerism and discusses how it applies to our practice. Over our time as a practitioner, we may have accumulated some layers of practice. Our brother encourages us to let go of these layers, these formalities and return to the essence of our practice. 
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply. 
 
(If you prefer the full 1-hr talk, it is available here.)

Dear friends,
 
Today we continue Brother Phap Hai's talk from Deer Park Monastery. He introduces The Eight Verses of Mind Training to help us practice and transform. Over the course of the next few months, our brother will offer all the eight verses for us. Today, the first verse: "May I always cherish all sentient beings and consider that compared to a wish-fulfilling jewel, they are far superior for liberating my heart."
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast.  Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.

Today we share a talk by Brother Phap Hai, shortly after his return to Deer Park from Europe. Our brother reminds us of the the meaning of the word: gratitude. To feel gratitude is to know what has been done for us. May we look back and look inside to remember. 

Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.  
 
(The full 1-hour talk is also available here.)

Dear friends,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast.  Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Today we continue to share a talk given by Sister Man Nghiem at the recent Wake Up retreat.  Our sister reflects on the idea of building our true home and asks us what we have chosen to build that home out of. Knowing to nourish ourselves with the Four Nutriments, we can build a solid home to withstand huffing and puffing from anyone and anything outside. To hear more about the Wake Up movement, go to wkup.org

Dear friends,
 
Today we share the first half of a talk given by Brother Phap Ho at this year's Wake Up retreat for young adults. Our brother shares about his early childhood heroes and how, for him, heroism is different from what's portrayed in popular media. We can be heros for the ordinary things we do in extraordinary ways. For more on the Wake Up movement and to find a local sangha, go to wkup.org
