At some point, we make the discovery that, ultimately, mind transcends death. Who we are and where we are is mind. Mind endures because it is unborn and unceasing; it endures because it transcends our concepts of time and space; it is not fixed to one occurrence in time or to one place. It is mind that journeys as a guest in this physical body until we take full possession of the boundless wisdom and compassion that are innate to us, and realize the freedom and purity of our abiding nature.
Instructions for Zoom participation
All are welcome to join Dharma Refuge for our regular Wednesday and Saturday practices and teachings, through Zoom.
Wednesdays, from 7:00-9:00 pm
Join Zoom Practice
Join us for our usual Wednesday meditation practice, followed by a recorded dharma talk or a live talk by a visiting teacher ZOOMing in.
Saturdays, from 10:00-11:30 am
Join Zoom Practice
Join us on for our usual Saturday practice. Two sittings with a 10 minute break in between.
If you are new to Zoom, plan to click on the link at least 15 minutes before the practice begins, as you may need to download the free application. It's also fine to pop in late.
