We have started our retreat with Dharma teachings at Namo Buddha under the guidance of Kenpo David. We are practising meditation in the morning and evening followed by insightful lessons ranging from the four noble truths to virtuous acts of merit and the effects of it in our lives.
When we delve into questions of karmic cause and effect the rational mind is very quick to try to make sense of it through factual concepts. As a hundred thoughts arise and slowly settle down with the evening sun. We are learning to be more mindful, to listen more than we speak and to be in tune with ourselves and everything that surrounds us.
