In tonight’s class Thay Phap Luu will discuss the 37th tenet.
The basic practice of Source Buddhism is the Four Domains of Mindfulness which has the function to recognize and transform the habit energies and fully realize the Seven Factors of Enlightenment and the Noble Eightfold Path. The Mahāyāna practice of meditation including the Zen of the patriarchs needs from time to time to go back to take a bath in Source Buddhism in order not to lose the essential Teachings of Buddhadharma.
This class is based on a book written by our teacher called Làng Mai nhìn núi Thứu or “Plum Village Looks at Vulture’s Peak” (an English translation is currently in progress but not yet available). The book describes the essential characteristics of Plum Village practice and teachings.
For an English translation of the tenets themselves, they are posted on the Order of Interbeing website.
