Tuesday Meditation: This Dewdrop World

From Online Meditators on Fri, 1 Feb, 2019 - 09:35

“This dewdrop world 
Is but a dewdrop world
And yet —”


- Kobayashi Issa

Our next series of online meditations will start on Tuesday 12th February at 4pm GMT /  5pm CET / 9.30pm IST / 11am EST / 8.00am PST for five weeks. We will be exploring the Four Mind-Turning reflections, which point to both the fleetingness of life and its preciousness, and remind us of the need to wholeheartedly turn our minds towards practising the Dharma.

The International Course took place in October 2018 in Adhisthana with 14 Order Members who hold positions of responsibility in Triratna from the US, Germany, India, Australia, the Netherlands, Ireland, and Mexico.
