Dear Thay, Dear Sangha
Tonight's teaching is on the 7th Verse. Thay Phap Ho shares that we can be aware that our happiness depends on my mindful attitude and not external conditions. We review the 4 recollections and we are encouraged to seek to recognize what is bringing happiness and joy to our lives. The Mindfulness Trainings are discussed and we can see that if we are practicing and living according to the Mindfulness Trainings we are at peace because we are not regretting anything.
To dwell in the present moment,
to transform all habit energies,
to give rise to understanding,
liberating ourselves from all afflictions.
The additional practice of a Minute Meditation is introduced as a means to slow down when we see that we are being carried away. Slowing down is a compassionate teaching.
We hope you enjoy this beautiful talk
Hello there, Many thanks for these classes, very helpful and nice to get a glimpse into Deer Park, though due to the holiday season and as I'm joining in from afar, am operating on a different timescale - just wondering about the blog that was mentioned in one talk, I think you said we could also join in if we have any quetions, can you please tell me how or where the blog is available? All best wishes, Trish Palmer, Wiltshire UK
