Dear friends,
Welcome to the Deer Park Dharmacast -- Dharma flowing from the Ocean of Peace.
We're happy to introduce a new member of the four-fold sangha at Deer Park Monastery on the podcast this week, Sister Dieu Nghiem, also known as Sister Jina. She gives this talk just before Thanksgiving and leads a guided meditation on awareness and gratefulness of the cells in our body. Joining her in mindfulness, we can remember that one breath is enough to bring us back to our true home.
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast at and on Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter. Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Dear friends,
We hope that your holiday has been restful and nourishing. Have you had a chance to stop and return to your breath? This week we invite you to join Brother Phap Ho in a session of guided sitting and movement meditation. Our brother gently reminds us that every moment is an opportunity to quiet our thinking and experience our breath in the body.
With Thay peacefully healing in the hospital, we have the chance to support his continuation through the building of the Deer Park Nunnery. The four-fold sangha continues to raise funds to build environmentally sustainable straw bale housing for the sisters and a hut for Thay. See for updates on the construction and how to donate. Most recent updates on Thay's health can be found at
Remember, you can always find the Deer Park Dharmacast on Facebook, iTunes, and Twitter. We welcome dharma sharings from our worldwide listeners on any of our online homes or by email. Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.

Two Sutras on Mindful Breathing This week Brother Phap Luu offers readings of two sutras on mindful breathing translated from Chinese by our teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh. These sutras were the main texts used during the 21-day retreat this past June entitled "The Breath of the Buddha." Included as well are some recent news items from Deer Park, and a brief introduction to sitting meditation.

We look forward to a Question and Answer session to take place in the coming week, so please e-mail us any questions you may have about the practice of mindfulness in daily life. A panel of monks and nuns will share based on these questions. You may also put a question in the comments to this week's show.

A PDF of Sutra 803 is available here, and of Sutra 810 here. The Chinese texts with Pinyin and Sino-Vietnamese are available here (803) and here  (810).

May you breathe in peace.
