QUESTIONS IN THE SAND

In Dharma practice, questions are very important. Most instances of enlightenment recorded occur in dialogues and most of these start from a question. This is how the Dharma is given and received.

Fragile Nature

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on April 5, 2020 at 11:34 1 Comment

As protection against the inevitable assaults of a human life - separations, failures, abuse, illness and death - we construct a set of strategies and defences called a self.
