We’re all in this together

Smiling Buddhist nuns greet each other.

message from Ven. Thubten Chodron

Wherever we are in the world, each of us is experiencing the effects of the spreading coronavirus in different ways—as individuals, families, communities, nations, and human beings that share one planet. Our interdependence is on full display, and it’s essential to keep our hearts open to kindness and compassion.

Let’s rely on the Dharma to maintain a mind that cherishes and cares for everyone in society. By relying on compassion and wisdom, we can overcome anxiety and fear. By following the health directives of our government health officials, voluntarily limiting our direct contact, sharing resources and helping where we can, we can each bring positive energy where it’s needed.

Watch the Abbey’s YouTube channel for Bodhisattva’s Breakfast Corner talks on how to practice during these days of the pandemic. And we invite you to tune in to several Livestream events and teachings scheduled in the next weeks. The schedule is below.

These are the times when we can join together to create peace in our chaotic world.
