The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
Tara Brach's Dharma Talks
Tara Brach
A pervasive but often invisible source of suffering in our culture is self-aversion. We are a busy culture, and we move through our life feeling anxious and dissatisfied, but not fully conscious of how we neglect or judge our inner experience. We suffer from a lack of belonging: to our own bodies, to each other and to the earth. When we practice Buddhist meditation, we learn how to listen deeply and hold our life tenderly.
1996-01-23 Belonging To The World...Refuge In The Sangha 51:38
the Buddha taught that our relationships are an essential and beautiful ground of the spiritual path. Sangha, which means spiritual community, is a refuge that can provide inspiration, support, and profound awakening to the truth of our connectedness.
