Practice Verses

One way to help us dwell in the present moment is to practice reciting gathas or mindfulness verses. When we practice with gathas, the gathas and the rest of our life become one and we live our entire lives in awareness. There are many gathas, you begin with one or two and learn more over time.

Hearing a Bell

Listen, listen
This wonderful sound
Brings me back to my true self.


Walking Meditation

I have arrived, I am home
In the here, in the now
I am solid, I am free
In the ultimate, I dwell .

Joining Palms, Meeting Others

A lotus for you
A Buddha to be.
