Daily Dharma

Take the time [you] need to prepare the body for meditation. By doing so, we invite the breath to become our closest ally—one we can rely on to inform us about and eventually lead us back to the spaciousness right here and now.

– Lauren Krauze, “Breathe Easy”

If enlightenment were easy, everyone would be enlightened. Meditation has its own pace. The practice brings you just the challenges you need and are able to handle at the right time.

– Jan Chozen Bays, “Endless Practice”

There is a humility to not-knowing that keeps us curious, alert, and humble.

– Alex Tzelnic, “Being Wrong Until You Get It Right”

Your thoughts will never stop. Just always come back to the breath. As long as you can do that, you’re meditating.

– Interview by Karen Jensen and Katie Egart, “Vows for Freedom”

Impermanence should end up being a feeling, not just an intellectual understanding.

– Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche, “Every Day Is a Bonus”

Buddhists have a role to play … in creating a different vision of America that is from the start about multiplicity and not singularity, from the start about interdependence.

– Interview with Duncan Ryuken Williams by Ashoka Mukpo, “Never Again”
