Early Birds Get No Sleep!

IMG_5152Having the blessing of my workshop successfully completed, I woke early to this beautiful sunrise.  I would have preferred a few more Zz’s but what a sight to begin a new day.

Waking up is the very nature of the teaching and the practice.  “Budh” means to wake up.  We call the one who is awake a Buddha.  The Buddha is someone who dispenses the teachings and the practice of awakening.  Each of us can transform his or herself into a lamp that can help the entire world awaken.
