Buddhist pilgrimage usually entails the renunciation of our familiar, comfortable world to encounter an environment infused with blessings. In this series, however, we’ll explore how to frame our ordinary, daily lives within a context of sacredness and openness. By unpacking the Himalayan Buddhist understanding of how we move through and interact with sacred spaces, Lama Elizabeth Monson reveals how to experience each moment of our lives as an opportunity for transformation and awakening.
