Dear friends,

This week, in celebration of Earth Day, we joyfully share with you a talk given by Brother Phap Ho at the recent Earth Holding Theme Weekend at Deer Park Monastery.  Our brother gently invites us to look at our world with open eyes.  We can shed the definition of ourselves given to us by modern media to see that we are not separate from the trees, the rocks and other humans.  We have the potential to wake up to our true boddhisattva nature to protect the Earth and nurture the boddhisattva in others. Let us breathe this air and walk on this land with gratitude.

The Dharmacast is taking a breather this week -- our coordinator, Cathy, is celebrating her continuation day!

Enjoy a talk from the archives; Br Phap Hai's Dharma in the Kitchen talk is one of Cathy's favorites!

Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma Flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This week we are lucky to share a talk given by Brother Phap Hoi and translated by Sister Khanh Nghiem.  Our brother poses an important question to us, "What is the essence of your spiritual practice?"  He gives examples of Vietnamese traditions that, over the course of time, have lost the beauty and essence of their original intent.  If we are not mindful, we can get caught up in the form and appearance of our spiritual practice and forget the essence that lies beneath.  Brother Phap Hoi reminds us that just because we are there at the monastery does not mean that we have ever truly set foot in a monastery.  Let us let go of our ideas about our practice, and just practice.

Dear Friends,
 
Today we share a talk given by Sister Hang Nghiem and translated by Sister Man Nghiem.  In this light-hearted talk, our sister tells us three fairy tales about nature and animals.  Children aren't the only ones who can benefit from stories.  Stories can touch our hearts and open new doors to our practice.
