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.
 
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,
 
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
Today, we offer the second half of Brother Phap Hai's dharma talk from this year's General Retreat.  He shares that despite a recent study showing that most people do not want to sit alone with their thoughts, as practitioners, we sit and look deeply into our thoughts quite frequently. Rather than choosing to react, we can choose this moment to see what this person, or this situation, is teaching us. Rather than trying to transcend, we can choose to accept and transform.

Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
 
This past Sunday at Deer Park Monastery, the annual general retreat closed with a lovely talk by Sister Kinh Nghiem.  She shares about the Four Immeasurable Minds, also known as the four elements of true love.  Then, she clearly connects them to the Four Mantras.  May this talk help you practice and cultivate true love in your life.

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.
