A common space for harmonic peacemakers
HH Dalai Lama during his Geshe examination in Lhasa in 1959
Experience of our days is up and down. This is on the outside and superficial. As we practice more, an inner experience begins to permeate our whole experience, our whole being. At first it waxes and wanes. With time and practice it becomes…Continue
The community of nature.
Columbanus wrote, If you wish to understand the Creator, then first understand his creation'
In other words, the way to understand the mind of an artist is through his picture, a potter through her pottery, an author through her writing, and so on. The Celtic missionaries saw God as the master…Continue

I cannot tell you
how the light comes.

The world without spirit is a wasteland. People have the notion of saving the world by shifting things around, changing the rules and who's on top, and so forth. No, no! Any world is a valid world if it's alive. The thing to do is to…Continue

"Everything under heaven is a sacred vessel and cannot be controlled.
Trying to control leads to ruin. Trying to grasp.. we lose.
