Dear friends,
 
Today we share the first half of a talk given by Brother Phap Ho at this year's Wake Up retreat for young adults. Our brother shares about his early childhood heroes and how, for him, heroism is different from what's portrayed in popular media. We can be heros for the ordinary things we do in extraordinary ways. For more on the Wake Up movement and to find a local sangha, go to wkup.org

Dear friends,
 
Today we share part of a talk given by Brother Phap Lieu in early April. He delves deeply into the research on our habit energies: the cues, cravings and rewards. With greater understanding, we can see ourselves more clearly and deepen our practice.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share a talk given by Sister Truc Nghiem and translated by Sister Bach Nghiem. In the beginning, the monastics chant a poem written by Thay. Then our sister reflects upon our ability to stop and discover the inner Buddha within. She invites us to welcome all that has always been there.

Dear friends,
 
Today we share songs of appreciation for our loved ones.  At a recent Day of Mindfulness, Brother Phap Ho shares a song by an late friend of Deer Park Monastery, Dennis Howard, and then, two monastics perform the Vietnamese song written for Thay's poem, A Rose For Your Pocket, a tribute to mothers. May these songs stir gratitude in your heart.

Dear friends,
 
At a recent Day of Mindfulness, Brother Phap Ho shares how he spent his recent Lazy Days. These days are designated days of relaxation at the monastery when there is no schedule of practice for the monastics.  Our brother finds that with the freedom of Lazy Days come the opportunity to discover rich teachings. 
 
Now, enjoy this moment to stop and look deeply.
