Uncertainty and the Bodhisattva vows (with chanting)

September 17, 2021

Today’s chant:

Countless are living Beings – I vow to row them all to the further shore

Countless are the poisons – I vow to purify them all

Countless are the teachings – I vow to understand them all

Countless are the blessings – I vow to bow my heart to them all

And though the road is endless, I vow to walk it to the very end

Yes though the road is endless, I vow to walk it to the very end

AUM Ah Hung Vajra Guru Pemé Siddhi Hung (x3)

    We need not avoid fear. Fear belongs to the illusion of a self that is separate from life. It is the byproduct of identifying with that illusion.

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Nathan Glyde – Week of July 18, 2022

    This week’s topic is Perfectly Imperfect. “True perfection seems imperfect, yet is perfectly itself.” – Lao Tzu. Expecting life to be perfect is stressful: a beautiful goal like “getting it right” prevents us from developing when it morphs into “never getting anything wrong.” The non-harming noble-truths path of the Dharma may arouse perfectionism, but if carefully followed, can set us free from such entrapment.

    Nothing is reliable outside liberation.

    Practice places emphasis on seeing impermanence. Such a practice easily becomes habitual to the degree we miss the point. There is nothing reliable owing to impermanence. There is nothing we can depend upon in this world of mentality and materiality, inner and outer. If we abide deeply clear about this, the stress and fears fade…

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Ulla Koenig – Week of Oct 17, 2022

    This week’s topic is “A Peaceful Mind”. Thoughts are our continuous companions. While some are harmless, others have a deep impact on us: not only do they shape perceptions, but they also influence our physical and mental well-being. In our darkest hours, we might feel the pain of negative, depressing or restless thought patterns. Shaken by their invasive nature, we often wish for a rest from the never-ending chatter. We dedicate the upcoming week to an exploration into the realm of thoughts and skilful practice.
