Having 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.
