the dharma in my life
an important part in my life is the dharma, which means something like "the true nature of things". I believe that every human being should have some time for reflection and spiritual practice in their daily lives. For me, at least, my dharma practice allows me to not get completely caught up in the speed and agression of life her in the US. Contemplating the Four Thoughts - about the preciousness of our human lives, and how short they are, about how all that we do will come back to us and how we do so many things in our lives that lead to suffering - helps me to refocus on what is really important.
