As a special treat for you all this week as we countdown to #buddhaday we will be releasing a series of dharma reflections each day…⠀
Ratnavyuha and Dhiramuni, two friends from Auckland, New Zealand, share their inspiration from some verses in praise of the Buddha, contained within the first chapter of the Vimalakirti Nirdesa. They offer an audio recording of the verses, and a practice suggestion for a reflective writing exercise for you to engage with.
• Listen to the reading from the Vimalakirti Nirdesa.
• Let it soak in with a period of reflection, and open to the possibility of such qualities becoming more important to you in your life and daily practice.
• In the next stage pick up your pen and start writing, loosely, informally, and continuously, for a period of time, perhaps ten minutes, allowing expression of your stream of consciousness.
•End with a period of Just Sitting.
