Who is Worthy of the Dharma?
We take a vow to save all beings, and then the asterisks begin to creep in — *except not those people. Divisive acts of body, speech and mind rapidly follow and escalate with frightening consequences. Vows and precepts buckle under social -- and social media -- pressure. In this workshop, we’ll spend the morning studying the Buddha’s teachings on identifying and investigating our habits of exclusion and separation. In the afternoon, we’ll apply the teachings to generate compassion and wisdom in our minds, and practice kindness and patience in our speech and body, for those beings who fall under our asterisks.
