It is the middle of the night here in Illinois. Yesterday, full day of Medicine Buddha empowerment and commentary, today full day of appointments. Woke up thinking how life is short and must make effort!
Life is not a disposable commodity! It is a rare opportunity! What is gained at great effort must not be wasted! Make effort!
The teaching schedule for 2010 is completed. I rejoice in the number of good people who took refuge, received meditation practice and became Buddhists this year. I rejoice in those who have taken vows over the years and have held them carefully this year. May many benefit!Dharma is the mother, father and midwife of change ~DGR ~~~
It is easy to be compassionate and kind when all of our needs are being met. ~DGR~~~
