2010-01-01 Let E-go 23:51
Our Dhamma practice builds an inner refuge that we can truly trust and rely on - a steadying influence through life's challenges to help us meet them with greater wisdom, patience, and forgiveness.  In the monastic setting, a dual focus on Dhamma and Vinaya, the monastic code of discipline, further strengthen our ability to let go of ego within the seclusion and support of spiritual community.

How can we trick the mind out of its old habits? The Buddha emphasized the power of the four Right Efforts. These royal allies advance the mind to its highest potential, the supreme wisdom possible for a human being. We are here to work for and receive this, our rightful inheritance - awakening to the truth of the Dhamma through our own intuitive realizations.
