Our Basic Program studies continue! Dharmaraksh*ta’s Wheel of Sharp Weapons is one of the most esteemed mind training teachings, and a powerful weapon to cut through our true enemies - the self-grasping and self-centered attitude which oppose bodhicitta and prevent us from achieving our highest potential, lasting happiness and peace.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this special event yesterday. Sixteen Dharma groups came together to raise awareness about discrimination against Asian Americans and explore Buddhism's unique and powerful approach to racial discrimination and violence.

Our heartfelt thanks, of course, to our speakers Ven. Losang Tendrol, Emily Hsu, sujatha baliga, and Tenzin Woden; moderator Jennifer Kim; and event organizer Lorne Ladner. Their stories and their insights showed us a way to healing, and to action.

We hope this event will serve as a beginning of increased, open discussions in the service of compassion, healing and inclusivity.
