In our next focus on the Elements of Practice we look at the first of two basic practices of the dharma: stopping and looking deeply. In this dharma talk, Brother Phap Ho guides us in Stopping – coming to rest in the present moment, allowing our minds to become clear and rest in awareness. We are then able to look deeply, to see that there are so many conditions for our happiness right around us that we might not notice otherwise, that we lose in the busy-ness of our lives. And through this awareness, we are also able to look deeply into ourselves, to look at how we are constrained by the habits of our lives and minds, as so find freedom.
Please enjoy these offerings, and may they guide us toward the crystal clarity of the present moment.
