What a great fortune to have been born a human, to be in harmony with others, and to have a chance to take this wonderful course! The second session is offered to us by Thay Phap Hai and is rich with insights into our beautiful practice.
The Second Verse:
Stopping (Shamatha) means to be still
In order to recognize, to be in contact,
To nourish, to heal,
To calm, to soothe, and to refocus the mind.
Thay offers us a guided meditation, an introduction to the five hindrances, and three means to plunge ourselves into the cool water of the present moment.
The reading materials for this class are available on the Deer Park Monastery website at www.deerparkmonastery.org
May all enjoy calm abiding in the present moment during the week ahead.
