May this email finds you in good health and joyful spirit. It is our happiness to share with you the Dharma talk for tomorrow’s Day of Mindfulness (March 06th, 2011) is going to be in English. Sister Dang Nghiem, author of the book Healing, is giving the Dharma talk on the “Discourse on Measuring and Reflecting.” This discourse was given by the Venerable Mahamoggallana to the bhikkshus, fully ordained monks, during the time of the Buddha. The venerable asked the bhikkshus the following questions:
What are the qualities that make someone difficult to approach? And What are the qualities that make someone easy to approach? Tomorrow, Sister Dang Nghiem will share with us this deep teaching, help and show us different ways on how we can apply it into our daily lives. The schedule for the Day of Mindfulness is as follows:
5:30am- Sitting meditation & Chanting 7:00am- Breakfast 9:00am- Walking meditation 10:00am- Dharma talk 11:30am- Recitation of the Five Mindfulness Trainings in English 12:30pm- Formal lunch
