Between the practice offered by the Tathagata and that of the ancestral teachers,
the Four Noble Truths perfectly interwoven
should serve as the foundation of an authentic transmission.
Thay Phap Hai offers a deep class today reminding us that the universe has a way of teaching us the lesson we are ready to learn. We alsways want to ask, "How does this teaching help me to transform?" If it doesn't it is not the right teaching at this time. The dharma should be immediately useful and effective.
The reflections for this week are:
What is my experience of giving and receiving?
Is it easier for me to give or to receive?
Why do I think this is?
Enjoy this wonderful class.
