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.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk given by Sister Truc Nghiem and translated by Sister Bach Nghiem. In the beginning, the monastics chant a poem written by Thay. Then our sister reflects upon our ability to stop and discover the inner Buddha within. She invites us to welcome all that has always been there.
